Ricardo Ramos vs. Zubaira Tukhugov Removed from UFC Fight Night 187 Card

By Tristen Critchfield Mar 9, 2021


A featherweight clash pitting Ricardo Ramos against Zubaira Tukhugov will not take place at UFC Fight Night 187 as originally planned.

According to an initial report by MMA journalist Igor Lazorin, Tukhugov was forced to pull out of the fight due to injury. MMAFighting.com has since confirmed that Ramos will not remain on the card after the promotion was unable to find a replacement opponent for him.

UFC Fight Night 187 takes place on Saturday at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas and is headlined by a welterweight tilt between Leon Edwards and Belal Muhammad. The card will stream in its entirety on ESPN+.

Tukhugov split a pair of bouts in 2020, defeating Kevin Aguilar via first-round TKO at UFC Fight Night 168 before dropping a split decision to Hakeem Dawodu at UFC 253.

Ramos has been victorious in five of his seven Octagon appearances but is coming off a first-round stoppage loss to Lerone Murphy at UFC on ESPN 13 this past July.
