Umar Nurmagomedov Vs. Jack Shore Targeted For March 2022
Two undefeated prospects might share the octagon in March.
Umar Nurmagomedov (13-0) and Jack Shore (15-0), dubbed the two most promising bantamweights, might share the octagon in England, but nothing is official yet.
Shore, 26, has been a member of the UFC since 2019.
He held four fights inside the octagon and celebrated the victory in all of them. In his first bouts, he earned the victory with submission rear-naked choke.
His third battle was the hardest for him. He fought with Hunter Azure and earned a split decision victory.
His last appearance was in September where he fought with Liudvik Sholinian and earned a unanimous decision victory against the Ukrainian fighter.
He received some serious injury and has not competed since.
Nurmagomedov has held only one fight since 2019, which was his debut in the UFC.
The Dagestanian fighter, 25, defeated Sergey Morozov in the second round via submission rear-naked choke.
Neither of the prospects are in the top 15, but they might guarantee their spot inside the rankings of the UFC’s bantamweight division by a victory.
