Adlan Amagov injured, Jason High meets Beneil Dariush at UFC Fight Night 35

Pat Lovell-USA TODAY Sports

Oh no! Adlan Amagov is injured! Jason High will instead face Beneil Dariush at UFC Fight Night 35.

The injury bug bites again!

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) hits the Arena at Gwinnett Center in Deluth, Georgia on January 15, 2014 with UFC Fight Night 35: "Rockhold vs. Philippou." The free card is set to be headlined by former Strikeforce Middleweight champion Luke Rockhold looking to pick up his first UFC win against Constaninos Philippou.

While the main event should provide fireworks, one of the most interesting fights was set to take place in the lightweight division between Jason High and Adlan Amagov. Unfortunately, Amagov was forced to pull out of the bout on Wednesday (Dec. 18, 2013) due to an undisclosed injury, leaving High without an opponent.

Amagov has been on a tear as of late, riding a three-fight winning streak, including a first round knockout of T.J. Waldburger at UFC 166. The injury is sure to be a setback with the constantly changing lightweight landscape.

The good news for High is that the promotion was able to find a new opponent pretty quickly. High has the honor of welcoming Beneil Dariush to the UFC. Dariush is a member of the Wand Fight Team and is currently undefeated with five of his six wins coming by stoppage.

High was the first to break the news on Twitter.

High is currently on a two-fight winning streak, with his latest win coming by Unanimous Decision at UFC 167 against Anthony Lapsley. While Dariush isn't the step up in competition that he expected, a win will surely make him a player in the UFC's lightweight division.

So what do you say Maniacs, is Dariush in for a hurting? Or will he upset High in his UFC debut? Sound off!
