·1 min read

Makhmud Muradov hasn’t lost in four-and-a-half years. Can he keep that going against Gerald Meerschaert?

Muradov announced Saturday on Instagram that his next middleweight bout will be against Meerschaert on Aug. 28 at UFC Fight Night. MMA Junkie subsequently confirmed the booking with a person with knowledge of the situation, who asked to remain anonymous since the UFC has yet to officially make an announcement.

Muradov (25-6 MMA, 3-0 UFC) is riding a 14-fight winning streak that dates back to April 2017, which includes his first three UFC fights – against Alessia Di Chirico, Trevor Smith, and Andrew Sanchez. Most recently, Muradov, 31, TKO’d Sanchez with a flying knee and punches this past January at UFC 257.

Meerschaert (32-14 MMA, 7-6 UFC), 33, will aim to continue rebuilding. He’s 3-5 in his past eight fights but most recently snapped a two-fight losing streak after he choked out Bartosz Fabiński last month at UFC on ESPN 22.
