A new bantamweight bout is added to the match card of the UFC 294 PPV event.
According to the latest reports, Said Nurmagomedov is set to collide against Muin Gafuriv in a bantamweight bout at UFC 294 on October 21, 2023.
The bout was first reported by Bakhriddin Jalovov of Vestnik MMA which was later confirmed by multiple other sources as well.
Said Nurmagomedov was having a four-fight winning streak which was broken by Jonathan Martinez earlier this year in March. Before that, he defeated Saidyokub Kakhramonov, Douglas Silva de Andrade, Cody Stamann, and Mark Striegl to start his winning streak.
On the other hand, Muin Gafurov earlier this year in June. However, he failed to make an impact as he lost the match to John Castaneda.
Now, both of them will collide at UFC 294, and it remains to be seen who will return to the winning path at the Etihad Arena in Abu Dhabi.
UFC 294 is set to be headlined by Islam Makhachev vs Charles Oliveira II for the UFC Lightweight Title bout.
