PFL adds Khabib Nurmagomedov-trained Murad Ramazanov to roster

A Khabib Nurmagomedov-trained fighter is the latest addition to the PFL roster.

The promotion announced that it has signed undefeated Dagestani standout Murad Ramazanov to an exclusive multifight contract. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Ramazanov, 28, is 11-0 with one no contest in 12 appearances as a professional. He will enter the PFL after a four-fight stint with ONE Championship where he won two fights by unanimous decision and one by first-round knockout.

Ramazanov’s most recent bout with former KSW two-division champion Roberto Soldic ended in a no contest at ONE on Prime Video 5 in December 2022 after Ramazanov accidentally landed a knee to Soldic’s groin that rendered him unable to continue.

For Ramazanov’s career, seven of his 11 victories have been finishes.

Ramazanov has spent his career training with world-class athletes, alongside UFC lightweight champion Islam Makhachev and Bellator lightweight champion Usman Nurmagomedov at Khabib’s gym, Nurmagomedov MMA School.

According to the PFL, Ramazanov will make his PFL debut in the first half of the year. It’s unclear which division as he’s competed at both middleweight and welterweight.
