Benito Hernandez has a perfect 3-0 record, and he expects that to reach four after Saturday’s Battle for the Belt.

None of his fights have made it past the first round, and Hernandez has used strikes as well as submissions to end the fights early. 155

“The ground is my creme de la creme,” he sad. “I am pretty good at submissions. If you ever fight me it’s going to go to the ground at some point.”

And when it goes to the ground, Hernandez is looking to end the fight.

“Usually I’ll look for the full mount, but whatever causes the most damage,” he said. “When it goes to the ground I like to impose my will.”

On his feet, Hernandez will put himself in the best position.

“It’s always about angles,” he said. “Whoever has the better angles has the better blows. I am so aggressive you can’t run from me in the cage.”

The Battle for the Belt takes place at the Seward County Ag Building Saturday. Doors open at 5 p.m. Tickets are available at Rine’s American Freestyle Karate or by calling 626-KICK, or online at cagetix.com.

“I hope this guy brings it,” Hernandez said. “’Cause God knows I am going to.”
