It looks like UFC lightweight contenders Beneil Dariush and James Vick are going to be meeting each other inside the Octagon in the near future.
MMAFighting.com reported this weekend that Dariush and Vick are expected to meet at UFC 199.
Originally, Evan Dunham was scheduled to fight Vick, however due to “undisclosed reasons,” Dunham pulled out of the fight, leaving UFC to find a replacement for Vick. It appears Beneil Dariush is the guy.
Dariush-Vick will join the UFC 199 pay-per-view event on June 4, 2016 at The Forum in Inglewood, California. Headlining the show that evening will be a UFC Middleweight Championship rematch between Luke Rockhold and Chris Weidman, as well as the rubber match for the UFC Bantamweight Championship between Dominick Cruz and Urijah Faber.
