Paired against Kevin Holland
October 18, 2020
Muradov will now take on Kevin Holland in Las Vegas on Oct. 31, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA reports.
Muradov needed a new opponent after Krzysztof Jotko withdrew Sunday due to a broken toe. He'll remain on the card after Holland was brought in as a replacement right away. Holland earned his third straight UFC victory quite recently, defeating Darren Stewart by split decision in September. Muradov will be looking for a three-fight UFC winning streak of his own, as he won his first two matches with the promotion last year.

Needs new opponent
October 18, 2020
Muradov needs a new opponent if he's to remain on the Oct. 31 card in Las Vegas, as Krzysztof Jotko withdrew with a fractured toe Sunday, reports.
Muradov hasn't fought all year after winning the first two matches of his UFC career in 2019.

Whether or not he remains on the Oct. 31 card against a different opponent remains to be seen.

Hammers Trevor Smith in DC
December 7, 2019
Muradov defeated Trevor Smith via KO (punch) at 4:09 of Round 3 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Washington D.C.
Easy work. In as a late-notice replacement for Alonzo Menifield, Muradov routed an over matched Smith. Entering the bout as a massive (-500) favorite, Muradov was in firm control from the very start. The finish came when a monster right hand clocked Smith in the jaw and sent his mouthpiece flying. A win over "Hot Sauce" means next to nothing in the grand scheme of things, but Muradov went about his business against an inferior opponent. The 29-year-old has now won his first two UFC bouts, and will leave the arena $50,000 richer after earning Performance of the Night honors.
