Damn, champ material or not he is exciting and can clear out the B squad with highlight reel finishes. I think this is a mistake.

Yeah, the tournament model leaves little room for Ben since he can't win them and has been in a few.

He wants out presumably so he can fight more (if he's not in the next tournament than he'll be sitting around) or maybe he would prefer a more regular schedule. The monthly tournament fights are tough because they don't allow time for a full training camp.

Either way Ben will be fine.
