UFC on FOX 15: Beneil Dariush to Face Jim Miller After Paul Felder Withdraws
By FCF Staff
Beneil Dariush is jumping right back into the Octagon, as following his win over Daron Cruickshank last month, he’s been tapped to fight Jim Miller at UFC on FOX 15.
The UFC has announced that Dariush is stepping up on short notice to replace lightweight Paul Felder, who is withdrawing due to a knee injury.
Dariush (10-1) is riding a three fight winning streak, and the 25 year-old fighter has gone 4-1 in the UFC to date.
The perennial contender Miller (24-5), on the other hand, is looking to rebound from a KO loss to Donald Cerrone last July. The 31 year-old is 3-1 with 1 no contest in his last 5 fights.
UFC on FOX 15 will be hosted by the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.
