Renato Moicano has his second light-weight combat booked.
Moicano (14-3-1 MMA, 6-3 UFC) will encounter Magomed Mustafaev (15-3 MMA, 3-2 UFC) at the UFC’s Oct. 17 event, which is expected to take position at Yas Island in Abu Dhabi.
A man or woman with information of the circumstance verified the scheduling to MMA Junkie on Tuesday following an preliminary report from Combate.
Soon after suffering back again-to-again stoppage losses to Jose Aldo and Chan Sung Jung, Moicano moved up to lightweight and submitted Damir Hadzovic in the 1st spherical at UFC on ESPN+ 28 in March.
Mustafaev has lost two of his earlier 3 and is coming off a split final decision decline to Brad Riddell in February. Prior to that, he scored a “Performance of the Night” end about Rafael Fiziev.
The latest lineup for UFC’s Oct. 17 card involves:
- Brian Ortega vs. Chan Sung Jung
- Poliana Botelho vs. Gillian Robertson
- Jimmy Crute vs. Modestas Bukauskas
- Muslim Salikhov vs. Claudio Silva
- John Phillips vs. Jun Yong Park
- Renato Moicano vs. Magomed Mustafaev
