Review: 2014-10-25, some good exchanges in the last part of the fight but it is not enough to get three stars: Carlos Diego Ferreira vs Beneil Dariush gets two stars. The undefeated black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu Carlos Diego Ferreira entered this fight with a perfect record of 11-0-0 (64% finishing rate) and he is ranked as the No.23 lightweight in the world while his opponent, Beneil Dariush (black belt in Bjj as well), has an official record of 8-1-0 (87% finishing rate) and he entered as the No.73 in the same weight class. Both fighters have faced Ramsey Nijem in 2014: Ferreira defeated him (=Ferreira vs Nijem) while Dariush was beat (=Dariush vs Nijem); after this fight Dariush came back to win beating Tony Martin. Ferreira vs Dariush is on the undercard of Jose Aldo vs Chad Mendes 2 – UFC 179; they also faced each other a second time n February 7, 2021 (Carlos Diego Ferreira vs Beneil Dariush 2).
