Beneil Dariush (19-4-1 MMA, 13-4-1 UFC) wants to face a giant of the UFC. Charles Oliveira (29-8 MMA, 17-8 UFC) was going to be his rival on October 3, but the South American left the event and could not happen. Now, with a very good streak of five consecutive won fights, the Iranian wants the best opportunity of his life to continue growing in the sport.
“I think it’s the fight that makes the most sense. We were supposed to fight on October 3. I accepted the fight on short notice. I think Islam (Makhachev) had to withdraw for some reason, and I accepted the fight on short notice and said, ‘Okay, if that’s the case, I’ll fight him. And something happened to him. I heard they were personal or family problems. I’m not sure what exactly it was, but I get it, ”he began.
For its part, Beneil He also commented, “I don’t blame him for withdrawing from the fight, so I understand he had them, but coming back, I think it makes more sense to fight me. He signed up to fight me. I signed, so coming back, nothing has really changed, so why not? The only thing that is different is that there is no champion, but I don’t understand how that would change his dynamic, so I think the fight that makes the most sense is for him to fight me and then go from there.
His last fight
In the contest that began with the stars of UFC Vegas 6, Dariush He knocked out his rival in a more than spectacular way and left several with their mouths open. The one who received the spectacular spinning blow was Scott Holtzman, who was left stretched out on the Octagon canvas. The fighters of the preliminary fights started with everything, leaving a huge expectation for what follows in the day: the stellar fights. There it all started with a fantastic touch of the sleep button.
«It was a great image that I was able to give today. I am very happy to have been able to finish that way. He had planned to try it and knew that at some point it was going to come out. I looked for it and I got it. He was a great rival and he knew he had to finish it because he has a great punch. Now I will rest, then I will return to training and I will begin to think about what will come for me “, was what he said Beneil Dariush.
