Benoit Saint-Denis, “The God Of War”, has had a fantastic UFC career so far; Saint-Denis is on a terrific 5-match winning streak; he last fought against Matt Frevola and secured a mind-blowing 1st round knockout win.

As of now, Saint-Denis is ranked 11th in the lightweight division and will most likely show up next in the early phase of 2024.

Interestingly, Benoit Saint-Denis eagerly wants to fight Justin Gaethje.

However, to reach that level, Saint-Denis may have to secure a few more comprehensive wins. It takes one moment for something to flip around forever in the most unexpected ways. Saint-Denis is a terrific fighter, and it will be great to see whether he makes it to the top or not.

Benoit Saint-Denis on fighting Justin Gaethje

Recently on The MMA Hour, Benoit Saint-Denis explained why he wants to fight Justin Gaethje. “It is a fight I want to have,” Saint-Denis said, as quoted by mmafighting.com.

“It’s at the top of the list, of course. It’s not his fault, but I do believe they are going to make [Islam] Makhachev against [Charles] Oliviera. Gaethje is a warrior, he likes activity, but he will have to fight again and big dates are coming next year, and he has already been defeating Dustin Poirier, he has been defeating a lot of tough guys, and I do believe this is a fight for the BMF [title] and he the chin to make it a war.

Saint-Denis further said: “I do believe we both have a chin that we can crack a couple of times, and if people want a violent fight and fight that could be [remembered by] history, I think that’s the fight to make.

I do believe we can have a fight that is going to be crazy. Crazy scrambles, crazy punching exchanges. I have a lot of respect for him, but I do believe he will have to fight before getting the title because of this Islam Makhachev and Oliveira stuff, and Islam doesn’t fight this much so he will have to wait a lot. If he wants a war, anywhere, I’m for it”.
