Ryan Spann vs. Nikita Khrylov will headline the Feb. UFC Event


Light heavyweights Nikita Krylov and Ryan Spann will clash in a five-round main event at an upcoming UFC card scheduled for Feb. 25.

Multiple people who were aware of the plans for the promotion confirmed that the information was received by MMA Fighting Friday. MMA Junkie first reported the news.

The fighters both have numbers next to their names in the MMA Fighting Global Rankings, with Krylov at No. 11, Spann at Number. 12.

Krylov is currently riding back-to-back wins in his past two fights including a unanimous decision over one-time title challenger Volkan Oezdemir in his most recent outing at UFC 280 in October. Overall, Krylov has gone 3-2 in his past five fights including additional wins over Alexander Gustafsson and Johnny Walker.

Spann is looking to continue the momentum he gained after a spectacular first round knockout victory over Dominick Remey at UFC 281.. It was Spann’s third win in his past four fights with all three victories coming by way of knockout or submission.

Spann will now look to keep his climb to the top against Krylov, an all-action fight fighter. The card’s headliner is the lightweight heavyweights in February.

At this time, there’s no word where the Feb. 25 event will take place.
