Murzakanov’s debut fight in the UFC will not take place at a tournament in Las Vegas

Russian fighter Azamat Murzakanov will not take part in the UFC Vegas 44 tournament. He was to fight with an American Jared Vanderaa, but he was not admitted due to medical reasons of the Covid-19 protocol.

Previously, both fighters went through the weigh-in procedure. The fights will take place on the night of December 4-5.

Recall that this fall, Murzakanov became a fighter of the UFC promotion, after he defeated the Brazilian Matheus Sheffil by knockout on the night of September 1 at the Dana White’s Contender Series tournament.
