UFC 199 video highlights: Watch Beneil Dariush knockout James Vick

New, comments

Before Luke Rockhold and Dominick Cruz defend their titles against long-time rivals Michael Bisping and Urijah Faber later tonight (Sat., June 4, 2016) at UFC 199 live on pay-per-view from The Forum in Inglewood, California, FOX Sports 1 played host to some fairly interesting preliminary matchups.

One of the most memorable contests was a Lightweight tilt between Beneil Dariush and James Vick, who came into the fight undefeated at 9-0.

Unfortunately for "The Texecutioner," he didn't last long as Dariush unloaded everything he had for the majority of the first round. After knocking Vick to the ground, landing blistering elbows, and overwhelming him with pressure and pain, Dariush earned the first-round knockout.

This victory will certainly keep Dariush in the running for meaningful bouts within the top 10 moving forward. As for Vick, he should evolve after this defeat and continue his evolution in the UFC.
