After a one-week break for the Thanksgiving holiday, the UFC hits the road for a fight night in Austin, Texas.

The card is headlined by a lightweight scrap between No. 4 ranked Beneil Dariush (22-5-1) and No. 8 ranked Arman Tsarukyan (20-3-0).

The co-main event faced a bit of a shake-up last week when Dan Hooker re-injured his arm and was forced out of his bout with Bobby Green. In his place is Jalin Turner.

“Nobody was stepping up. The [UFC] asked me. I said no, in the beginning, and then came back with something, and I was like hmmm,” Turner said on the JAXXON Podcast. “It’s like, it is what it is. I don’t turn fights down. You know, like, respectfully, since we’re from the same area, I didn’t want to; that’s why I said no, in the beginning. But you know, they came up with a counteroffer, and they like told me some stuff like, like, dang, I’m kind of like in a position where I feel I have to take it if that makes sense.”

The rest of the card remains in tact at press time.
