Back to Business - Cruickshank-Dariush Set for UFC 185

 
Following an abbreviated bout with KJ Noons in December that ended due to an accidental eye poke, Daron Cruickshank is back on duty and ready to fight, and on March 14 in Dallas he will find fellow lightweight prospect Beneil Dariush waiting for him in the Octagon as the two meet in a UFC 185 contest.

Tickets for UFC 185 at American Airlines Center, which is headlined by the UFC lightweight title bout between Anthony Pettis and Rafael dos Anjos and the UFC strawweight title fight between Carla Esparza and Joanna Jedrzejczyk will go on sale Friday, January 23.

Winner of three of his previous four bouts before the no contest with Noons, Detroit's Cruickshank is one of the most dynamic strikers in the 155-pound weight class. Dariush is on a hot streak since the lone loss of his pro career against Ramsey Nijem last April, submitting Tony Martin and decisioning Diego Ferreira.
