UFC Fighter Beneil Dariush gets his Tesla Model X, and the reason he ordered it

UFC lightweight contender Beneil Dariush finally has a Tesla Model X in his possession, and he also has the reason he ordered the vehicle: his newborn daughter. On May 15th, Dariush got the biggest win in his UFC career by defeating former Interim Lightweight Champion Tony Ferguson in a dominant unanimous decision victory that displayed his well-rounded Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu skills. The real show came after the fight with Ferguson, however, as Dariush called out Tesla CEO Elon Musk, asking where his Model X was after he had been waiting several months for the all-electric SUV.

Beneil Dariush says Charles Oliveira owes him UFC lightweight title fight: “Just own up to the person you were supposed to fight”

Beneil Dariush says Charles Oliveira owes him a UFC lightweight title fight, saying to “just own up to the person you were supposed to fight.”. At UFC 262 last month in Houston, Oliveira defeated Michael Chandler in the main event of the evening to win the vacant UFC lightweight title. In the co-main event, Dariush defeated Tony Ferguson via unanimous decision in a performance that rocketed him into the top-five in the UFC lightweight division. Oliveira and Dariush are two of the best fighters in the world at 155lbs right now and it feels like they will eventually meet inside the Octagon. But if you ask Dariush, he is hoping that this fight takes place much sooner rather than later.
