Benito Lopez is an American mixed martial artist who has earned his stripes in the UFC. He was born on August 26, 1990 in Fresno, California and grew up with a passion for sports. His parents were very supportive when it came to athletics, so Benito was able to participate in many different activities from a young age.
Lopez started training MMA when he was 18 years old and quickly found success competing as an amateur fighter at various promotions throughout California. After racking up wins and titles at the local level, Benito made his professional debut for King of the Cage (KOTC) promotion in 2014 where he went 3-0 before signing with Resurrection Fighting Alliance (RFA).
In 2016 Lopez competed four times under RFA where he went 4-0 and captured their flyweight title after submitting Junior Mariano via rear-naked choke in the first round of their championship fight. As champion of RFA’s 125 division, Lopez earned himself a contract with UFC following their organization’s merger with WEC back then.
