Tsarukyan said this to mmajunkie.usatoday.com about his upcoming fight against Dariush, “They (fans) got to expect the best performance from Arman Tsarukyan. The best KO. Definitely, it’s going to be a finish. So, if I want to fight for the title, I’ve got to finish. To be honest, I like a lot Dariush. I like the fighter; I like the guy, so I’ve got to give him respect. Before Gamrot, I had never fought five rounds. Now I fought five rounds and I have that experience. Now I know how to control my gas. Beneil never had a five-round fight so that’s good. I already have that, and I have more experience in five rounds. Hopefully it’s not going to be five rounds; I want to finish him early.”

Ex-UFC referee John McCarthy said this to mmanews.com about the upcoming fight between Dariush and Tsarukyan, “Tsarukyan will stand there and bang with just about everybody. He'll use his wrestling when he gets the opportunity. Look, Beneil, I love him, man. Like I said, (he's) awkward, creates different angles in ways that are not the norm, and so it takes you out of your normal game that you like to play. It makes you hesitate. I'm not sure that Arman is old enough to hesitate. (Age) makes a huge difference, let's be honest. Beneil's 34, I believe. Arman is now 26 or 27. That right there, he (Tsarukyan) has a confidence in his ability to do whatever he wants, when he wants, and it doesn't matter to him what his opponent does.

UFC Picks

Tsarukyan is listed as almost a 3-1 favorite in UFC odds. I understand why the odds favor Tsarukyan, but I don’t know that he should be that big a favorite. I have a lot of respect for Dariush and I don’t think this will be an easy fight for Tsarukyan. I think Dariush is good enough to make this competitive and he is not without a chance to win. That being said, I think instead of taking a flyer on Dariush at a nice price, I think the better option is to simply play the rounds to go over the total.
