UFC FN 73: Watch “The Match-Up” Preview For Johnson-Dariush

Michael Johnson

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.
