Justin Gaethje and Dustin Poirier will have a new fight on July 29. It will be an ideal opportunity for Gaethje to take revenge for the last defeat. Speaking to MMA Junkie, Beneil Dariush revealed who he considers the favorite in this great match.
Dariush believes that Gathje is the favorite, however, he emphasized that he had the opportunity to train with Justin, so he may be a little biased. “I love the fight. I think it’s an amazing fight,” -Dariush told MMA Junkie.
“I think it does have title implications. I just think they would be behind me. I don’t think they’re gonna be able to step in front of me. I’m leaning towards Justin, and I know he lost the last one, but I feel he’s more motivated.
I could be biased, I’ve trained with him, he’s a friend of mine, and I think he’s a great guy. I could be a little bit biased, so I’m leaning towards him”.
Beneil Dariush on BMF title
The BMF title is back, and both will have a motive to win it.
Dariush emphasized that he never had a motive to win titles. He is a fighter who wants to prove himself in the cage and "finish" his opponent. Everything else is less important to him. “As far as the ‘BMF’ belt, it’s cool.
I don’t really have too many thoughts on it. I saw something with Justin Gaethje saying you get more money if you have it – it’s another perk. So, it’s a belt, some people like it, some people don’t.
I was never really that interested in belts anyway. I just like beating up people, and I want to beat up the best people. It’s not a negative or a positive for me, but I like the fact that it brings in more eyes”.
