Dariush Faces Miller after Injury Fells Felder

 
A knee injury has forced Paul Felder from his UFC on FOX bout against Jim Miller on April 18 in Newark, but stepping in for "The Irish Dragon" at Prudential Center to face the home state favorite will be rising lightweight star Beneil Dariush.

Winner of three straight, Dariush is coming off a second-round finish of Daron Cruickshank at UFC 185 earlier this month that earned him Performance of the Night honors. In Sparta's Miller, he will face an 18-fight veteran of the UFC who has won two of his last three bouts.

Tickets for UFC Fight Night Newark, which is headlined by the middleweight bout between top contenders Lyoto Machida and Luke Rockhold, are on sale now. The card will air on FOX.
