An exciting match up in the UFC’s featherweight division between Zubaira Tukhugov and Ricardo Ramos has been added to a UFC Fight Night card on March 13.
TASS MMA reporter, Igor Lazorin first reported the booking on his Instagram earlier today.
At this time, there has been no location or venue set for the card.
Tukhugov (19-5-1 MMA, 4-2-1), a teammate and training partner of lightweight champ, Khabib Nurmagomedov, is coming off a loss to Hakeem Dawodu last September. Prior to that, he knocked out Kevin Aguilar in the first round with punches. With Tukhugov being 1-1-1 in his last three fights, not only is he looking to get the victory against Ramos, he will be looking for that fight to be the start of a long winning streak at featherweight.
Ricardo Ramos (14-3 MMA, 5-2 UFC), who will also be looking to get back in the win column on March 13, is coming off a first round knockout loss to Lerone Murphy, last July. Murphy, 29, also fought Tukhugov to a draw back in 2019. Prior to his loss to Murphy, Ramos submitted Eduardo Garagorri by rear-naked choke in the first round.
With the addition of this bout to the UFC Fight Night card on March 13, the lineup now includes:
Leon Edwards vs. Khamzat Chimaev
Davey Grant vs. Jonathan Martinez
Matthew Semelsberger vs. Jason Witt
Jinh Yu Frey vs. Gloria de Paula
