Benil Khobier Darish is married. However, not much is available about Daryush’s wife on the internet. Needless to say, due to Daryush’s approach to a professional social media profile, his personal life remains a mystery.

Daryush is married to Victoria, and they have two beautiful daughters. Despite leading a private life, Daaris has frequently mentioned his wife during their fights. Recently, he shared his wife’s thoughts on his last fight against Carlos Diego Ferreira.

My wife called me and shouted at me. And that said, that was not the game plan. But I enjoyed it. And then immediately after the fight, I got really emotional,” Darish said at the post-fight press conference.

Needless to say, Daryush’s wife plays an important role in his fighting career. Darish has repeatedly emphasized the value of family, and as the Iranian-American fighter moves forward in his UFC career, the future looks bright for the 32-year-old fighter.

How active is Benil Darish?
Daryush’s last 5 fights have happened over a period of 2 years, 11 months and 23 days, which means he is fighting every 7 months and 5 days on average. In those bouts, he fought a total of 10 rounds, meaning he lasted an average of 2 rounds.

Next Fight

Darish, number 5 in the latest USA TODAY Sports/MMA Junkie Rankings with 155 pounds, is set to meet No. 15 Mateusz Gammarot at UFC 280 in Abu Dhabi on October 22. In the official UFC rankings, Daryush and Gamrot are ranked No. 6 and 9 respectively, so it’s a good booking for sure. It’s just that it’s another matchup against a lower-ranked opponent.

Looking back on his seven-fight winning streak since dominating Tony Ferguson in May 2021, Dariusz – whose lengthy layoff was caused by an ankle injury – probably thought, by chance, that he would fight the vacant lightweight title fight at UFC 280. However, it was going to be up to Charles Oliveira, who would headline the event against Islam Makhachev.


Daryush has a really solid professional MMA record of 21-4-1 and a UFC record of 14-4-1. He did not lose even once during his 6 fights before his UFC debut. His first outing to promote Dana White came against Charles Brenneman at UFC Fight Night 35 in January 2014.

He won via submission but lost his next fight against Ramsey Nigem at UFC Fight Night 39, which was also the first defeat of his professional MMA career. His only career draw came against Evan Durham at UFC 2016.
