Beneil Dariush Frustrated With Lack Of Clarity Surrounding UFC Lightweight Title Picture: "I Don't Want To Wait, I Want To Fight"

UFC lightweight contender Beneil Dariush is annoyed by the current state of the promotion's lightweight title picture.

Dariush recently spoke with ESPN's Brett Okamoto and explained why he doesn't plan on waiting for a title shot, as he ultimately just wants to know who will be fighting for the currently vacated UFC lightweight championship next and what that means for his Octagon return.

“I don’t want to wait, I want to fight,” Dariush said (h/t MMA Junkie). "If Islam gets this fight, cool. If I get the fight, cool. I get it. You can make a case for both of us. Like you said, Islam is on a 10-fight win streak, I have a win in the top 10 and the top five. When I beat Diego Ferreira he was top 10, when I beat Tony (Ferguson) he was top five so whatever. You can make a case for both of us. Honestly, I don’t care. Let me know who’s next. Am I fighting (Michael) Chandler, am I fighting Dustin Poirier, am I fighting Islam? I want to know if I’m fighting Islam and by a miracle am I fighting Charles. I just want to know what’s going on next and that’s really where I’m at.”
