Withdraws from Saturday fight
October 29, 2020
Muradov is out of Saturday's scheduled matchup against Kevin Holland, reports.

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. He's had bad luck with cancellations, losing a matchup against Antonio Carlos Junior in March due to Carlos Junior's torn ACL and see his April fight against Karl Roberson called off due to the coronavirus pandemic. Whether or not he remains on the Oct. 31 card against a different opponent remains to be seen.
Booked for October fight
August 1, 2020
Muradov will face Krzysztof Jotko in a middleweight fight at UFC's Oct. 31 event, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA reports.
Come October, it will have been just over a year since Muradov made his UFC debut with a unanimous decision victory of Alessio Di Chirico. Muradov then took it a step up in his second fight, scoring a third-round knockout ofTrevor Smith at a UFC Fight Night event back in December. He'll look to make another statement with a victory over Jotko, another promising fighter who has defeated his last three opponents.
Fight scratched
January 13, 2020

Muradov's opponent, Carlos, has suffered an undisclosed injury, which is the reason for the fight being called off. He sports a 24-6 MMA, 2-0 UFC record, but will now have to wait a little longer for his next fight.
