Rising lightweights will be paired up in early December when Brad Riddell faces Rafael Fiziev. The fighters are expected to meet at UFC’s December 4th event, per a report from Farah Hannoun and Nolan King of MMA Junkie.
The location for UFC’s December 4th card cannot be confirmed at the moment.
Both Fiziev and Riddell have been quickly gaining momentum in the UFC.
Riddell has been undefeated since joining the UFC roster two years back. He defeated divisional gatekeeper Drew Dober in his last bout. He isn’t afraid of going the distance in his fights, as he has picked up every UFC victory on scorecards thus far.
Fiziev lost in his UFC debut back in 2019, marking the sole blemish on his pro record. Since then, he has put together four consecutive wins. He keeps prevailing as the challenges get steeper, with his two most recent wins coming against Renato Moicano and Bobby Green.
The main event for UFC’s December 4th card is unknown at the moment. The pairing of Riddell and Fiziev is the first match to be reported by Knockdown News for that date.
