Tsarukyan confirmed a fight with an opponent from the top 5
Number eight in the UFC lightweight rankings Arman Tsarukyan announced that in his next fight he will meet with a fighter from the top five.
“My next fight will be with someone from the top 5. At the moment I cannot disclose his name, but the date and opponent have already been confirmed. That is, I know who it will be, but I can’t say who exactly yet. But he’s definitely in the top 5 rating,” Tsarukyan said on his YouTube channel.
Despite the lack of specifics, we can say with confidence that we are talking about Beneil Dariush. The American is the only available fighter from the top 5, and rumors about his fight with Tsarukyan began circulating in early August.
