Beneil Dariush Form

Beneil Dariush is the #4 ranked lightweight contender with a career record of 22-5-1 (5 KOs, 8 Subs).

Dariush has rebounded from a three fight-winless run with eight victories in his last nine fights to surge into title contention.

He got back to winning ways with a decision victory over Thiago Moises in November 2018, and backed that up with submission successes against Drew Dober and Frank Camacho.

The 34-year-old Iranian then knocked out Drakkar Klose in the second round and Scott Holtzmann in the first round to continue his streak.

Dariush edged Carlos Diego Ferreira by split decision as the wins kept piling up, and he took his streak to eight fights with unanimous decision wins over Tony Ferguson and Mateusz Gamrot.

That win streak came to an end in June though, as he was submitted in the first round by Charles Oliveira.

Arman Tsarukyan Form

Arman Tsarukyan is the #8 ranked lightweight contender with a professional record of 20-3 (8 KOs, 5 Subs).

Tsarukyan made a disappointing start to his UFC career as he dropped a decision to Islam Makhachev in his debut.

He has bounced back impressively though, winning seven of his last eight fights to climb into the top 10 in the rankings.

The 27-year-old Armenian beat Olivier Aubin-Mercer via unanimous decision, and then recorded points successes against Davi Ramos and Matt Frevola.

Tsarukyan then recorded his first stoppage victory in the UFC when he stopped Christos Giagos with strikes in the first round, and he followed that up with a second round TKO of Joel Alvarez.

His streak was halted by a unanimous decision defeat to Mateusz Gamrot, but he has rebounded by beating Damir Ismagulov on points and knocking out Joaquim Silva in the third round.

Verdict

Beneil Dariush has a size and experience advantage that can lead him to an upset win.

He is backed to stuff Arman Tsarukyan’s takedown attempts, keep the fight standing and pepper him from range to take the win on points.
