UFC 288 is going to be explosive; a lot of excitement is already built around the event; Aljamin sterling will be defending his bantamweight belt against the veteran Henry Cejudo who, after 3 years, is finally coming out of retirement.
The co-main event is equally thrilling; Charles Oliveira, the former lightweight champion, will be confronting Beneil Dariush in the octagon, and the winner is likely to get a title shot next. Daruish was expecting this match to take place in March instead of May and blames Charles Oliveria for the delay caused.
The match is official, and it's happening; that's what matters for now, and on May 6th it will be exciting to see who wins.
Beneil Dariush expresses his frustration
Beneil Dariush spoke about this on the schmo, and he also addressed other things.
"Man, I'm not gonna lie, little pissed at Charles. We should have done this fight in early March," said Daruish. "I should be chilling right now, spending time with my baby, but I have to do my practice, I have to do my recovery stuff, I have to eat right, lose weight, and still spend time with my baby.
Not gonna lie; pretty pissed. I'm going to make sure I'm going to be as ready as possible, is the way I'm going to put it". He further speaks about the outcome of the match if it happens to be a 3-round fight. "The game plan is to be perfect.
If we fight three rounds, he doesn't get anything from me. I win every second, I win every position, and I dominate the fight. That's the game plan. I believe I will finish him before then, but my focus is three rounds." 'The champion has a name, and the name is Charles Oliveira', something Oliveira keeps saying and has also proved to the MMA world with his excellent performances; his journey is truly inspiring.
As far as Dariush is concerned, it is worth knowing that the lightweight contender is on a 7-match win streak, and the whole world will look forward to seeing if he can extend the well-maintained win streak on May 6th.
