A knee injury has forced Paul Felder out of his April 18 tango against Jim Miller (pictured). Have no fear, Beneil Dariush is here.
Dariush has agreed to serve as a replacement to meet Miller at UFC on FOX 15.
Miller is looking to bounce back from July’s devastating knockout loss to Donald Cerrone. The veteran had won two consecutive bouts prior to getting thrashed by “Cowboy.”
Dariush will be riding a three-fight winning streak into the bout. The up-and-coming 25-year-old is fresh off this month’s submission victory over Daron Cruickshank.
Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey hosts the festivities.
Here is the card’s updated lineup:
Kenny Robertson vs. George Sullivan
Nick Catone vs. Vitor Miranda
Corey Anderson vs. Gian Villante
Jimy Hettes vs. Diego Brandao
Felice Herrig vs. Paige VanZant
Jim Miller vs. Beneil Dariush
Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza vs. Yoel Romero
Luke Rockhold vs. Lyoto Machida
