The Stockton native, Diaz, on the other hand, will return to action against Leon Edwards in a welterweight co-main event.

As for ‘El Cucuy‘, the fight against Dariush will be very important for his future. Ferguson is currently on a two-fight skid, for the first time in his illustrious professional career. He will look to bounce back from that and make himself relevant in the title conversation yet again. Once considered the best lightweight on the planet, Ferguson has to prove he is still the same savage despite his recent slump.

Can Tony Ferguson prove his mettle against Beneil Dariush at UFC 262?

Dariush is currently on a six-fight winning streak in the lightweight division. Ferguson fought a similar sort of challenger in Charles Oliveira in his last fight. ‘Do Bronx’ made the most of his opportunity and now he will fight for the belt at the same event. Dariush will look to utilize his chance against a star like ‘El Cucuy’ in the same way.

The consensus belief is that the 37-year-old, Ferguson, is on the wane and has left his best days as a fighter behind him. But ‘El Cucuy’ will be determined more than ever to show his fans that he is still the man.
