Beneil Dariush Unsure When He’ll Return

The No. 3 ranked lightweight, Beneil Dariush (21-4-1, 15-4-1 UFC), was supposed to share the octagon with Islam Makhachev this weekend.

However, just two weeks before the fight, he suffered a broken fibula. Dariush was forced to be out from the title eliminator battle, and Bobby Green replaced him in that fight.

Dariush visited four different doctors, but still, he does not know what is next for him, according to Brett Okomato on Twitter.

“Per Beneil Dariush (@beneildariush), he has visited four physicians regarding his broken fibula. Three suggested physical therapy; one advised surgery. As of now, he is going with PT and trying to avoid surgery. Still no firm timeframe on his return, but no surgery is good news.”

Meanwhile, Makhachev will try to increase his winning streak up to 10 and guarantee himself a title shot. The fight will, however, happen at 160 pounds, so it won’t affect the lightweight rankings.
