UFC Announces Signing of Flyweight Prospect Muhammad Mokaev

Undefeated 21-year-old flyweight prospect Muhammad Mokaev has joined the UFC roster, per an announcement made by the promotion Thursday.

Mokaev has signed to the UFC after attaining an undefeated amateur and pro record thus far.

Mokaev had an extensive amateur career, putting together 23 consecutive wins from 2015 to 2020. This included a run in the 2019 IMMA World Championship, where he captured a gold medal at bantamweight.

Mokaev has mostly competed in the MMA promotion Brave CF since his pro debut last year. He has scored five wins, with three of them being stoppage wins.

His last victory was in September, where he secured a second-round rear naked choke win over Blaine O’Driscoll.

Mokaev, 21, is now the youngest member of the UFC roster.
