UFC on Fox 19 Highlight Video: Watch Michael Chiesa Become the First to Submit Beneil Dariush

By Mike Sloan Apr 16, 2016

Lightweight contender Michael Chiesa looked superb against Beneil Dariush in the featured preliminary bout as he scored a second-round submission.

Chiesa was rocked by the Iranian in the first, but he weathered the storm and regrouped. Early in the second, the Washington native landed a powerful takedown and quickly took Dariush’s back and from there, it was a matter of time before he sunk in the rear-naked choke, forcing the tap. The official time of the submission came at 1:20 of the frame, allowing “Maverick” to become the first man to submit Dariush in MMA.
