Former IFL standout Benji Radach is officially a free agent and is looking for competition. The news comes from our friends at MMAWeekly.
Radach, who was favored to win the IFL’s middleweight grand prix tournament before losing to Matt Horwich, re-injured his neck during training shortly after the fight with Horwich, but feels he is now ready to step into the ring again.
“It’s doing good. I don’t really feel any problems with it,” said Radach about his neck injury. “I’m going live. I’m definitely going to get another MRI and stuff done. Back then, the doctors said I just needed to take it easy and I pretty much took it easy for about five months. It should be healed up.”
Radach has learned his lesson about taking too many fights in too short a time, a factor he attributes to his loss against Horwich.
“My main goal is to not get too many fights going. That’s kind of one of the things I blame for the loss with (Matt) Horwich,” he stated. “I just wasn’t hungry. I was kind of burnt out, and I fought so much that year, and trained so hard, twice a day, and just kind of ran myself ragged. I just didn’t have the fire when I went into that fight.”
Radach is currently keeping his options open.
“I’m a free agent and I have a couple options so maybe, possibly the Affliction show, and then also possibly EliteXC.”
