‘I Know What Happens When You Make The Government God’: UFC Star On Marxism And His Faith

When you find an athlete willing and able to hold a conversation that goes beyond the sport in which they compete, you listen.

Beneil Dariush is a UFC athlete. It’s what he does for a living, but there is so much more to the man. The passion he has for his faith and family — along with his stark opposition to Marxism — comes across when you take the time to speak with him.

After his last victory — a victory over Tony Ferguson — Dariush didn’t take his fifteen minutes of fame to scream and shout about his greatness. Instead, he took his time to call out to those in the world who have been impacted by the ideology Dariush is so against.

“I really wanted to talk about Marxism,” Dariush said in a wide-ranging interview with The Daily Wire. “Again, ‘Thug’ Rose mentioned it a month before and she got a lot of hate because of it. I was going to say the same thing as she said, but for some reason I didn’t. I didn’t say ‘better dead than red.’ I said, ‘I want to dedicate this fight to all the people who have been hurt by Marxism. I know there’s a lot of them.’”
