Beneil Dariush And Islam Makhachev Set To Contest In February

Views: 65 | Updated On: | By Jitu Jangir



UFC Fight Night is going to get bigger as Beneil Dariush and Islam Makhachev headline a UFC Fight Night on February 26, 2022.

According to Brett Okamoto, Both lightweights have agreed and the promotion has not yet announced a location for the event.



These two have worked their whole lives to become a champion and this is a No. 1 contender match. Khabib actually said 1.5 years ago these two would fight for the No. 1 contender.

The 155-pound, five-round contest will headline a UFC Fight Night, said Abdelaziz.

"I don't like it when two guys who I really love have to fight, but these two have worked their whole lives to become a champion and this is a No. 1 contender match," Abdelaziz said. "Whoever wins this fight will fight for the title, so who am I to tell them not to fight? They're at the top and I wish both guys the best of luck."



There are even chances for the winner to receive a lightweight title shot in his next fight. No. 1-ranked Dustin Poirier is currently scheduled to challenge Charles Oliveira for the title in December.

Islam Makhachev last faced off Dan Hooker. He won the fight by a kimura submission in the first round. As of November 2, 2021, he is #4 in the UFC lightweight rankings.
