UFC Fight Night: Dariush vs. Tsarukyan

Dariush aims to bounce back after enduring his first loss in over five years. Following a knockout defeat to Alexander Hernandez in 2018, Dariush (22-5-1 MMA, 16-5-1 UFC) embarked on an impressive eight-fight winning streak, earning four post-fight bonuses and securing a victory against former interim lightweight champion Tony Ferguson. However, his streak was halted in June at UFC 289 when former champion Charles Oliveira claimed a first-round TKO victory. Dariush remains one of the most successful figures in UFC lightweight history, boasting 16 wins in the division, which ranks third all-time in the promotion.

With a record of 20-3 MMA and 7-2 UFC, Tsarukyan secured consecutive victories against Joaquim Silva and Damir Ismagulov after a decision loss to Mateusz Gamrot in 2022. The Gamrot fight earned him a $50,000 Fight of the Night bonus in his inaugural UFC main event. Before the loss to Gamrot, Tsarukyan boasted an impressive five-fight winning streak.
