UFC lightweight contender Beneil Dariush pulled off an impressive victory at UFC 262 on Saturday night. Dariush, ranked No. 7 defeated No. 5 contender Tony Ferguson at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas. Following Dariush’s dominant unanimous decision victory (30-27, 30-27, 30-27), the Iranian-American fighter had a message for victims of Marxism.
The 32-year-old MMA fighter thanked Jesus Christ and dedicated the tremendous victory to victims of Marxist ideologies.
“First things first, I want to thank my lord and savior Jesus Christ, that’s number one,” Dariush told UFC color commentator Joe Rogan in a post-fight interview inside the octagon.
“Number two, I want to dedicate this fight to all the people who’ve been hurt by Marxist ideologies,” Dariush proclaimed. “There are millions of you.”
“It’s just a fight, I know it’s not much, but I want you to know that I love you. And I understand the pain…I don’t completely understand, but I love you. I understand your pain.”
The victory at UFC 262 will defintely put Dariush one step closer to a potential title match for the 155 pound belt which is current held by new Lightweight champion, Brazil’s Charles Oliveira.
