UFC Fight Night 184 results: Beneil Dariush outgrapples Diego Ferreira for decision win

Beneil Dariush and Diego Ferriera displayed a little bit of everything when they fought Saturday at UFC Fight Night 184.

Multifaceted elements of mixed martial arts were on full display for three rounds before Dariush (20-4-1 MMA, 14-4-1 UFC) was declared the victor by split decision (28-29, 29-28, 29-28) in the lightweight main-card opener at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas.

The first round started off a grappling affair but quickly turned into a slugfest. Dariush landed the first major strike of the fight, a body shot that temporarily crumpled Ferreira (17-2 MMA, 8-2 UFC). Despite the adversity, Ferreira survived to land some big shots in the final minute of Round 1.

Dariush controlled most of Round 2. Once again, his grappling appeared to be a step ahead of Ferreira, who threatened unsuccessful submission attempts off his back.

Round 3 mostly took place on the feet. As the round progressed, Dariush’s gas tank seemingly reduced, but he continued to push forward. At the direction of coach Sayif Saud, Ferreira stayed aggressive, but was ultimately taken down and held for most of the final minute of action.

With the victory, Dariush’s winning streak ran to six. Prior to the win over Ferreira, Dariush defeated Thiago Moises, Drew Dober, Frank Camacho, Drakkar Klose, and Scott Holtzman in succession, a streak that dates back to November 2018.

As for Ferreira, the loss snaps a six-fight winning streak. Ferreira’s previous loss came against Dustin Poirier at UFC Fight Night 63 in April 2015.
