Mudaerji (13-4) is coming off back to back wins. He scored a ‘knockout of the year’ contender in his most recent outing, finishing Malcolm Gordon with strikes in under a minute.

Adashev (3-2) was signed by the UFC after putting together three straight wins on Bellator cards. He was knocked out in just over 30 seconds by Tyson Nam on his promotional debut.
