Beneil Dariush is ranked #6 in the UFC's lightweight division. Earlier scheduled to to take on Islam Makhachev, it seems like UFC is looking at booking Makhachev vs Oliveira next!
"I wanna know who does the rankings, so I can ask him like why? What's the idea behind these guys being in front of me." Dariush said.
Dariush opined Islam Makhachev doesn't deserve to be above him in the UFC rankings considering the the opponents he has beat in his UFC career.
"I understand Islam is on a big win-streak, but he never actually beat a top-10 or a top-5." Makhachev added.
The grappling protégé also added that Michael Chandler doesn't deserve to be in the top-5 considering he is 2-2 in the UFC. Chandler is ranked #4 in the division.
Dariush also says Michael Chandler's rank doesn't make sense!
Dariush is coming off a dominant win over Tony Ferguson. However, he hasn't fought since May of 2021.
Do you think Beneil Dariush should be ranked above Islam Makhachev and Michael Chandler?
