After unexpectedly getting submitted by Michael Chiesa back at UFC on FOX 19, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Lightweight contender Beneil Dariush rebounded nicely with a first-round knockout of a previously undefeated James Vick at UFC 199.
With a victory to get him back on track at 155 pounds, Dariush (13-2) will attempt to continue his winning ways when he meets Russian striker Rashid Magomedov at TUF: Latin America 3 Finale on Nov. 5 live from Arena Ciudad de México in Mexico City, Mexico. It will be Dariush’s first fight outside of the United States since defeating Carlos Diego Ferreira at UFC 179 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
As for Magomedov (19-1), who hasn’t lost since 2010 en route to earning a 4-0 promotional record, this will be his biggest opportunity to date to punch his way into the top 10 and prove that his world-class striking is ready for the big stage.
TUF Latin America 3 Finale will be headlined by a Lightweight title eliminator bout between former champion Rafael dos Anjos and Tony Ferguson, who puts an eight-fight win streak on the line.
