Kevin Holland will return on October 31st, as he steps in for Krzysztof Jotko against Makhmud Murdaov on a UFC card. The new matchup was first reported by Shawn Bitter via Twitter.
The fight joins a 12-fight card that is scheduled to take place from the UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.
Jotko announced his departure from the bout on Sunday.
“Few days ago at sparrings I broke my toe,” Jotko revealed via Twitter.
Holland will look to extend his three-fight streak of wins that he has attained in 2020. After finish wins over Anthony Hernandez and Joaquin Buckley earlier in the year, Holland returned in September to win a split decision over Darren Stewart.
Muradov will put his 13-fight streak of wins on the line in the fight. He made his UFC debut in 2019, defeating Alessio Di Chirico via decision. His second appearance was a stoppage, catching Trevor Smith in the third round with punches.
