“In my mind, if I’m as good as I think I am, if I’m the best in the world then everybody’s food,” Dariush said.
“All these guys are just food and the only difference is, is the rotation. Like who’s gonna be first for me to eat. That’s basically how I look at it and so that’s one of the reasons why I’m not jumping on it like, ‘Oh, Charles has to give me this fight.’ I could clearly say, ‘Hey buddy, you always talk about how the top five never gave you the fight.
“We were scheduled to fight, we were supposed to fight in October of 2020, you bailed on me and said family issues, and then December you fought Tony Ferguson.’ What the heck, man? You’re being kind of a hypocrite. If I really cared, that’s how I’d come at this. I’d be like, ‘You’re being a hypocrite, you owe me a fight. Give me the fight,’ but I don’t care. Just tell me who’s next and let’s get to work. That’s really how I feel right now. Just annoyed. Mostly annoyed is the way I would put it.”
