A win tonight could mean title implications for either Ferguson or Dariush. Before this co-main event, Ferguson indicated that Michael Chandler was avoiding him. If Chandler wins the title later tonight, Ferguson could have a built-in storyline to gold.

Round: 1

The bell rings and both men meet in the middle of the cage. The feeling-out process isn’t long as Dariush connects with a solid right hand 10 seconds into the match. 

Dariush leads the charge, controlling the pace and getting the better of the exchanges, super aggressively. He lands a takedown and Ferguson immediately begins working from the bottom.

Beneil frees himself and unleashes some powerful ground and pound. He virtually secures a top position for the rest of the round.

Dariush secures a leg lock and the fight looks like it could be over. Tony toughs through it and Dariush goes back to ground and pound. 

He finishes the round in the dominant top position.
