Beneil Dariush wants Dustin Poirier’s be in agreement to resolve what UFC discussed behind-the-scenes
Beneil Dariush have been feeling identical to the peculiar man out throughout the UFC’s lightweight identify symbol. The veteran was supposed to face Islam Makhachev last 365 days in a bout that may have made up our minds the #1 contender throughout the division.
Then again, he was confused out of the bout with harm and had to stay on the sidelines for a chronic time frame. While he was out, he spotted Makhachev get booked to face Charles Oliveira for the vacant identify later on this 365 days (vacant because of Oliveira left out weight for his most recent identify defence).
Later it was presented that Dariush might be coping with Mateusz Gamrot. The former KSW champ in recent years bested Arman Tsarukyan at UFC Vegas 57.
Dariush spoke to MMA Junkie in regards to the battle with the 9th ranked Gamrot. With that outlet Dariush revealed that he had a much different battle in ideas.
“We asked the UFC for Dustin Poirier,” he discussed (ht MMA Data). “And it’s not in reality clear, I don’t know if Dustin grew to grow to be me down or the UFC not at all even asked Dustin because of I felt a person like me, let’s be honest. I’m not a star, and the scary issue about me is I with reference to devour the massive identify and I don’t turn out to be the massive identify. So it’s just a little of of a hard scenario. It’s conceivable they didn’t even ask him. If I might simply, I’d like to ask Dustin, ‘Hi, did they in reality provide the battle?’”
Dariush added that, if he wasn’t combating Poirier, he thinks a battle between ‘The Diamond’ and Justin Gaethje would make a lot of sense for the dep..
Dariush started in a rich vein of form once more in 2018 when he beat Thiago Moises by the use of unanimous solution. Since then he’s received six right away fights.
All the way through that streak he’s beaten Drew Dober, Drakkar Klose and Carlos Diego Ferreira. Final day trip, at UFC 262 last 365 days, Dariush beat Tony Ferguson by the use of unanimous solution.
