Having defeated Chidi Njokuani, his next opponent Albert Duraev wants to see the Brazilian Andre Muniz, who occupies the thirteenth line in the UFC middleweight ranking.
“I want to have the next fight in June-July against the Brazilian guy Andre Muniz,” quotes the Russian MMAJunkie. “He is in the top 15 of the rankings, I want to fight a ranked opponent and show a good fight”
“Sambo vs Jiu-Jitsu? May be. I can stand up, wrestle, use jiu-jitsu, sambo – I am ready to compete in all aspects and beat him.”
The fight between Albert Duraev and Chidi Njokuani, which became part of the UFC on ESPN 43 tournament, ended with the victory of the Russian by a split decision, and Andre Muniz suffered his first defeat under the banner of the organization in February, losing by rear naked choke in the third round to Brendan Allen.
