Undefeated Nick Maximov To Face Punahele Soriano At February 5th UFC Card

Fresh off a successful UFC debut, undefeated middleweight Nick Maximov will meet Punahele Soriano at the promotion’s February 5th card, per Cole Shelton of BJPenn.com.

The fight joins a card that doesn’t have a confirmed location at the moment.

Maximov, a protege of UFC fighter Nick Diaz, won his promotional debut in September via unanimous decision against Cody Brundage. The fight was his seventh victory since turning pro in 2018.

Soriano will be fighting to bounce back from his sole pro loss. The explosive prospect was handed a loss in July, losing on scorecards to Brendan Allen.

Soriano scored a quick win in his two prior UFC bouts, stopping Oskar Piechota and Dusko Todorovic within a round.
