UFC rated lightweight Beneil Dariush has revealed his plan for Saturday’s bout against Tony Ferguson, who will be the co-main event of UFC 262.
“I know that you shouldn’t tell other people about your game plan, but I’m going to go into the octagon and try to finish Tony from the very first to the last minute. But I don’t know how I can do it,” said Dariusz. – “A spectacular 15 minutes await you, or a finish that any of us can arrange.”
Despite a possible victory, Dariusz is not sure how much she will advance him in the division, keeping in mind that the next contender for the title will be the winner of the upcoming rematch between Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor. Nevertheless, Dariush does not despair, inspired by the example of Max Holloway, who came a long way until he got the title fight.
“It’s weird. I could win the next fight without even getting close to the title. This is the craziest part. I could have had a cautious fight, get it right and take the win, but not even be second in line for the title. Conor, Dustin, Gaethje. This is an interesting division. But I remember Max Holloway needed to win 10 fights in a row before fighting for the belt. So I’m not going to complain, but I will continue to do what I do, “said Dariusz.
