Striegl (18-2-0-1) is the reigning URCC featherweight champion. He has fought for numerous promotions in Asia including PXC and ONE Championship.
The 32 year old has been matched with an opponent from Dagestan. Nurmagomedov (18-2) will be looking to bounce back after suffering the first defeat of his UFC career.
As previously announced featherweights Chan Sun Jung and Brian Ortega have been booked to fight on October 17th. As is often the case in the Covid-19 era the promotion has yet to confirm a destination for this card.
