Biography
Dariush was born and raised on a farm in Iran. When he was nine, he and his parents moved to the United States, where they had a large extended family. Dariush is a devout Christian, often making note of his religious affiliation during UFC media events, promotional work, and post-fight interviews. In keeping with this faith, he sponsors an orphanage and Christian school in Haiti known as the Cap-Haitien Children's Home. Dariush is also an avid supporter of the foundation ColorsForKindness which helps youth battle mental illness and depression by using their artistic creativity to express themselves.
