A clash between Alex Oliveira and Ramazan Kuramagomedov is set to go down this weekend at UFC Vegas 20. Randy Brown was originally scheduled to fight Oliveira but was forced to withdraw. MMA Junkie was the first to announce that the welterweight scrap between Alex Oliveira and Ramazan Kuramagomedov will go down at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas this Saturday. Though, the promotion has yet to make an official announcement.
Alex Oliveira and Ramazan Kuramagomedov Late Addition To UFC Vegas 20
Alex Oliveira (22-9-1 2 NC, 11-7 1 NC UFC) is looking to get back to his winning ways after his last outing ended in defeat at UFC 254 to the Kazakhstani Shavkat Rakhmonov, who submitted Oliveira in the first round. This ruined his two-fight win streak, where he was victorious over Peter Sobotta and Max Griffin.
The six-year veteran of the UFC has had an enjoyable career, winning three Performance of the Night bonuses and two Fight of the Night bonuses along the way. He’s overcome big-name fighters like Carlos Condit and Tim Means, whilst getting into scraps with the likes of Mike Perry, Gunnar Nelson, and Donald Cerrone.
Ramazan Kuramagomedov (8-0, 0-0 UFC) will have his dream come true this weekend as he makes his first appearance in the UFC. He’s performed for the likes of ACB, PFL, and CFFC on his journey, and he was also on Dana White’s Contender Series in 2019, where he defeated Jordan Williams via split decision.
White deemed the decision questionable, as he criticized the judges after the event, which seems clear he thought the wrong guy won. Kuramagomedov remains unbeaten though and goes into this fight with five finishes to his name.
