Beneil Dariush

UFC Fighter

1.) What advice do you have for an aspiring MMA Fighter?

Look for a good gym and dedicate yourself full time. If this is what you want to do, put all your effort into it. That's the only way you can get to where you want.

 

2.) What has been the highlight of your career?

It was when I got the call that I'll be fighting in the UFC. Not so much the fight, but the call.

 

3.) You just defeated Charlie Brenneman, what's next for you in 2014?

The UFC hasn't called me for an opponent yet, but I'd like to fight as soon as possible. I have no injuries and the fight was quick.  

 

4.) What do you like to do in your free time?

I spend a lot of time with my family, watch movies, I read a lot of Japanese comics. I'm a bit of a nerd in since I don't go out much!  

 

5.) What does a typical day look like?

I wake up in the morning. I have two options in the morning, go to my Kings MMA training, or I'll go to my wrestling training. If I go to Kings, I'll teach before I train. In the afternoon, I'll do wrestling and conditioning, and in the evening I do Jiu-Jitsu.

 

6.) Who were your heroes growing up?

I looked up to fictional characters. Dragon Ball Z, Batman, Spiderman! Now it's Rafael Cordeiro (my coach). There are so many people I look up to.

 

7.) Who has been the toughest fighter you've faced?

To pick one is very difficult. They're all tough. I've been very blessed to have successful fights so far.
