Douglas Silva de Andrade to Face Sergey Morozov at UFC 271 on Feb. 12

By Tristen Critchfield Oct 11, 2021


A bantamweight clash pitting Douglas Silva de Andrade against Sergey Morozov has been added to the UFC 271 lineup.

Combate was first to report the booking. UFC 271 takes place on Feb. 12 at an as yet to be determined location. The event does not yet have a headliner.

Silva de Andrade fought twice in 2021, splitting a pair of bouts. After dropping a unanimous verdict to Lerone Murphy in a featherweight affair at UFC on ESPN 20, the 36-year-old Brazilian returned to 135 pounds and scored a first-round KO of Gaetano Pirrello at UFC Fight Night 193 on Oct. 2. He is 5-4 over the course of a promotional tenure that began in 2014.

Morozov also went 1-1 in the Octagon in 2021. He suffered a submission loss to Umar Nurmagomedov in his debut at UFC on ESPN 20, but rebounded to outpoint Khalid Taha at UFC on ESPN 26. The former M-1 Global champion has won six of his last seven professional outings.
