UFC Fighter Beneil Dariush: ‘There is True Freedom In The Lord Jesus Christ’

By Movieguide® Staff

UFC fighter Beneil Dariush recently defeated Mateusz Gamrot in a unanimous decision win for his eighth Octagon victory in a row.

Before his fight with Gamrot, Dariush hadn’t appeared in the Octagon for over a year. Despite his break, Dariush won the fight soundly.

The Iranian-born American MMA fighter dedicated the win to his native family in Iran, but also took time to point people to true freedom.

“I’m sorry Daniel but I got to take a minute, I need to dedicate this fight to my people in Iran,” he said. “I know you’re struggling, I know you’re fighting for freedom, I know it’s a tough struggle. I want you guys to know we’re praying for you and we love you.”

“Let me tell you one more thing,” he continued. “This might be the most important thing you’ll ever hear: there is true freedom, a Freedom that no one can take from you in the name of Jesus Christ, the son of God. Don’t ever forget that. If you remember one thing I say, remember that.”
