The Retirement of Benning Boy:
Who is Benning Boy?
The guy who is constantly starting entertaining threads?
The guy with a quick post here or there that will have you spitting soda on your computer?
The guy who keeps us all from posting the same lame topics over and over again?
But who is he really and what does he do in his real life?
We have had little glimpses into the man’s actions. He had a medical incident with his toe last year, supposedly due to a Cold Steel Machete incident. He works in “health care” but we are not given any real evidence of this “job” – and he seems to be way too entertaining to just be a mere day in and day out medical professional.
He disappears for a few days, shows back up, stays on for hours, then just up and disappears again. He’s way too wordly, so he has obviously done extensive traveling. Hmmmmm?
Well, I have taken it upon myself to do some research, and what I found out was pretty shocking to me.
Benning Boy, or Razor Sharp as he has been known to his fans, has been earning his living as a Mixed Martial Artist for the UFC!
That’s right, this little “medical job” of his is actually sending fighters who opposed him in the 205lb Division to the hospital FOR TREATMENT.
The numbers are staggering.
35 Fights! Zero losses!
34 Knockouts and 1 Submission!
7 times he won Knock Out of The Night!
5 times he was involved in Fight of The Night!
He won the 205lb Title and defended it 27 times in a row!
Knockout wins over a who’s who of the 205lb Division:
Chuck Lidell ( 4 times ),
Rashad Evans ( 6 times ),
Forrest Griffin ( 4 Times ),
Tito Ortiz (4 times AND one submission ),
Lyoto Machida ( 4 times ) and
Thiego Silva ( 4 times ).
He has represented such MMA powerhouse camps as Boot Camp, American Top Team, Brazilian Top Team, Caeser Gracie Academy & Team Quest.
His list of sponsors is a who’s who of the sport. TapOut. Hitman Fight Gear. Nogi. Toe 2 Toe. Hayabusa Fight Wear. Harley Davidson Motorcycles. Xyience. Warrior Wear.
After his last fight he was honored with being inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame by Dana White personally.
Excellent work, JD. I thought I knew him a little, but obviously not. I'd buy his next ppv fight. He does need to give out tickets to his friends, imo.
Very well done!! :D
Seriously! Ring side seats, or backstage passes so we could meet the ring girls.
I volunteer Skull and Myself for Official Ring Girl Outfit Assistants at your next fight Benning. :D
Can he get me a date with "the lovely Arianna"?
Well I'll be damned.
I've been kind of directionless for awhile. The old "Pirate looks back at 40" thing.
The inspiration of Tango in the Emo thread made me think that it's not enough to whine about how pathetic the new generation is, a glaring example must be set.
So as I sat contemplating another whey protein shake, the wife gets back from the store, had hit up the Red Box, and got me "Never Surrender", the MMA movie.
I hopped on the Forum, and while most will view this thread as amusing, for me it was a 400 lb.ebonite bowling ball scattering the pins of my indecision.
I've got one great fight left in me.
I know where, I know when, and now I know what I must do.
If it all goes to plan, I will be in Skullcrusher land in March.
J.D., thank you, My Friend!
