A post shared by Beneil Dariush (@beneildariush) on

“After my fight with Scott Holtzman, the UFC offered me a fight with Charles Oliveira on Oct 3rd. I accepted and so did Charles. I did not announce it because I was waiting on the UFC to announce it and I would follow. I been informed Charles is out of the fight. I am not sure on the details but I hope all is well with Charles. I am currently working with the UFC to figure out our next step. I will keep you all posted on the details. Finally, even though the fight did not come to fruition I want to thank the UFC, Sean Shelby, and my brother Ali Abdelaziz for setting this up.”

There is no word at this time as to whether or not Dariush will remain on the card or if he’ll get a new fight on a different event.
