Dariush is certainly a fighter worth keeping your eyes on Saturday as he comes off three consecutive “Fight of the Night” victories, all finishes. He’s on a four-fight win streak overall, which has him at 18-4 in his career. I like Dariush to continue rolling Saturday in a fight scheduled for three-rounds at lightweight (155 lbs). This will be the opener of the main card.

Because of how deep the LW division is, Dariush is still relatively going unnoticed with the exception of some die-hard fans and bettors. That’s fine by me as it means we’re able to grab him at a pretty good value for this fight. The key against Scott Holtzman will be Darisuh’s superior striking ability. Although don’t discount his takedowns either. Each of Dariush’s last four fights (all wins) have seen him land at least one takedown.

Holtzman has never been finished in his pro MMA career, however only three of his past nine wins have been by way other than decision. I see him being at a disadvantage either standing or on the ground, so it’s a clear fade here. Holtzman just isn’t that great of a defensive fighter and that spells doom against an opponent such as this.

 

 

Best of luck!
