Misha Cirkunov vs. Makhmud Muradov Added to UFC Fight Night Lineup on Feb. 26



A middleweight showdown pitting Misha Cirkunov against Makhmud Muradov is slated for a UFC Fight Night card on Feb. 26.

Multiple outlets confirmed the booking following an initial report from MMA journalist Igor Lazorin. The UFC Fight Night event takes place at an as yet to be announced location and is headlined by a lightweight bout between Islam Makhachev and Beneil Dariush.

Cirkunov has won just two of his last seven Octagon appearances dating back to May 2017. Most recently, the 34-year-old Latvia native made his middleweight debut at UFC Fight Night 193, where he suffered a split decision loss to Krzysztof Jotko on Oct. 2. Cirkunov owns notable wins over the likes of Jimmy Crute, Patrick Cummins, Nikita Krylov and Ion Cutelaba.

Muradov, meanwhile, had a 14-bout professional winning streak snapped in his last outing, when he suffered a second-round submission defeat ot Gerald Meerschaert at UFC on ESPN 30. The Uzbekistan native kicked off his promotional tenure with triumphs over Alessio Di Chirico, Trevor Smith and Andrew Sanchez.
