Muhammad Mokaev

Muhammad Mokaev, undefeated UFC flyweight fighter will face off in front of the London crowd versus Jafel Filho at UFC 286.

Mokaev will take on Jafel Filho, Dana White’s Contender Series contract holder at UFC 286 in March 18th. Filho will make his UFC debut following a knockout of Roybert Echeverria at DWCS.

Mokaev is back after submitting Malcolm Gordon in the third round at UFC 280 last Oct. Mokaev is now 3-0 during his UFC career, including recent wins against Cody Durden and Charles Johnson, former LFA champions.

Mokaev, 22, is one of the top prospects in flyweight. He had previously been a successful fighter in Brave CF, and Celtic Gladiator before he signed with UFC.

Mokaev suffered a dislocation of his shoulder and had to have an operation. He’s still set to fight in UFC 286, which he had previously planned for his debut in 2023.

Mokaev is determined to be the UFC’s youngest ever champion. He is still eligible to do so. At No. He currently sits at No. 14 in the flyweight rankings, and could rise to the Top 10 with a win.

Filho has won five fights consecutively in Shooto Brasil, P2 Fight and other tenures. All five of the consecutive wins ended in finishes.

Mokaev/Filho’s winner will add another dynamic flyweight in the 125lb title picture. Deiveson Figueiredo will face Brandon Moreno in a flyweight tetralogy on UFC 283 this Saturday.

Mokaev/Filho are the latest additions to UFC 286. Recent additions include a lightweight fight between Rafael Fiziev and Justin Gaethje, former title challengers.

UFC 286 will feature a welterweight title trio between Leon Edwards, Kamaru Usman and Kamaru Uman.
