Bennell Dariush

Despite having a rough weight cut, bookies still favored Daron Cruickshank as he entered the octagon tonight. Beneil Dariush not only implemented his gameplan, but he landed better kicks tonight which is usually Cruickshank’s gig!

Dariush was brilliant in his approach as he cut off any and all of Cruickshank’s striking attempts. Whenever Cruickshank stepped in to kick, Dariush countered by whipping his shin into the body. Cruickshank took repeated punishment to the body and walked to the middle of the octagon at the start of the second with his mouth hanging open, gasping for air.

Cruickshank tried to take the fight to the ground, but he paid for it by ending up in several bad positions. Dariush utilized his elite grappling skills to almost trap Cruickshank in a D’Arce choke and an armbar before submitting him with a deep rear naked choke to end it all.
