Of course, much of the spotlight at UFC Fight Night 73 will be on Glover Teixeira and Ovince Saint Preux, who will throw down in the headliner. The co-main event, however, is a compelling bout between lightweights contenders Michael Johnson and Beneil Dariush.
Johnson (16-8) is riding a four fight winning streak, and since he’s ranked #5, “The Menace” could move into the title shot mix if he scores a big win.
Dariush (11-1), has done nothing but impresses since he was stopped by Ramsey Nijem, and has also won four straight. Most recently, he worked his way to a UD win over the ridiculously rugged and well rounded Jim Miller, and is ranked #12.
In advance of tonight’s bout the UFC has released an interesting vid called “The Match-Up“, which features both men breaking down the fight from a technical perspective. You can check it out below.
UFC FN 73 will take place in Nashville, Tennessee.
