Umar Nurmagomedov will attempt to keep his undefeated record alive in his third UFC appearance, facing Nate Maness at the promotion’s June 25th event. News of the matchup was first confirmed by reporter James Lynch on Thursday.
The pairing is joining a “Fight Night” card that doesn’t have a confirmed location at the moment.
Nurmagomedov currently has a strong flawless record of 14 wins as a pro. He has earned two of those victories in the UFC, which he officially joined in 2020.
Nurmagomedov had a quick performance in his last fight, earning a first-round submission victory against Brian Kelleher in March.
While Maness doesn’t have an undefeated record, he has also yet to lose since joining the UFC roster. He earned his third consecutive victory for the promotion in his most recent outing, stopping Tony Gravely with strikes last year.
