Report: Renato ‘Moicano’ Forced Out of Magomed Mustafaev Clash on Fight Island

By Tudor Leonte Sep 15, 2020
It appears that the second fight of “Moicano” in the 155-pound division will have to wait.

According to a report by Ag Fight, Renato Carneiro is unable to leave the United States and won't compete against Magomed Mustafaev on Oct. 17. The UFC is currently looking to reschedule the fight for later this year.

In his latest appearance, Carneiro (14-3-1) scored an impressive first-round submission of Damir Hadzovic back in March. The UFC Fight Night 170 encounter also marked the debut of "Moicano" in the lightweight division after a stint at 145 that ended with a 5-3 record, including victories against Cub Swanson and Calvin Kattar.

Mustafaev (14-3) is also looking to bounce back after dropping a decision to Brad Riddell at UFC Fight Night 168.

The upcoming UFC Fight Island event is taking place in Abu Dhabi on Oct. 17. The main event will feature a featherweight clash between Brian Ortega and Chan Sung Jung, better known as “The Korean Zombie.” The card will also feature the return of former UFC strawweight champion Jessica Andrade, who will square off with Katlyn Chookagian.
