PIVOTAL FLYWEIGHT FRACAS! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to Arena CDMX in Mexico City, Mexico, on Feb. 24, 2024, with a pivotal Flyweight fracas between former 125-pound kingpin, Brandon Moreno, and most recent title challenger, Brandon Royval, who replaces the red-hot (and injured) Iraqi “Prince,” Amir Albazi. In UFC Mexico City’s ESPN+-streamed co-main event, top-ranked Featherweight contenders, Yair Rodriguez (No. 3) and Brian Ortega (No. 4), will run it back after their initial encounter ended prematurely via gross injury.

Don’t miss a single second of face-punching action!

There’s not much to recap here! Stoltzfus came out aggressive, but Magomedov circled off then introduced Stoltzfus’ mouth to the ball of his foot. His front kick stunned Stoltzfus badly, and a follow up flurry of punches sent him to the canvas for good. The referee intervened soon afterward, resulting in the sub-20 second stoppage.

Magomedov has a great record and prior experience in PFL. With his wrestling and kickboxing experience, the odds seem strong that Magomedov can make a really impact at Middleweight.
