Ramazan Kuramagomedov Steps in to Face Alex Oliveira at UFC Fight Night 186

By Tristen Critchfield Feb 23, 2021


Ramazan Kuramagomedov will replace Randy Brown and meet Alex Oliveira at UFC Fight Night 186 on Saturday.

MMAjunkie.com was first to report the new welterweight booking. UFC Fight Night 186 takes place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas and is headlined by a heavyweight tilt pitting Jairzinho Rozenstruik against Ciryl Gane. The card streams in its entirety on ESPN+. Brown withdrew from the event for undisclosed reasons.

Kuramagomedov appeared on Season 3 of Dana White’s Contender Series, earning a split decision win against Jordan Williams in July 2019. The Dagestani fighter didn’t receive a UFC contract at the time and has since posted back-to-back submission wins. Kuramagomedov is 8-0 over the course of a professional tenure that also includes stints in Professional Fighters League and Absolute Championship Berkut.

Oliveira went 2-1 in 2020, taking a split verdict over Max Griffin at UFC 248 and a unanimous decision against Peter Sobotta at UFC on ESPN 14 before falling to Shavkat Rakhmonov via first-round submission at UFC 254. The 33-year-old Brazilian is 11-7 with on one contest within the Las Vegas-based promotion.
