Muhammad Mokaev has booked his third UFC fight.
MMA Junkie confirmed the booking with two people with knowledge of the situation Monday. The news was first reported by ESPN.
Mokaev (7-0 MMA, 2-0 UFC), who’s one of the most promising fighters at 125 pounds, is coming off a dominant unanimous decision win over Charles Johnson at UFC Fight Night 208 in London earlier this month. The 22-year-old has yet to taste defeat in his professional MMA career.
Meanwhile, Gordon (13-5 MMA, 2-1 UFC) last fought in February when he scored a first-round TKO over Denys Bondar. Gordon is currently on a two-fight winning streak.
