Magomed Ankalaev vs. Nikita Krylov on Feb. 27

Magomed Ankalaev faces Nikita Krylov at UFC Fight Night on Feb. 27. The location for the event has yet to be announced. ESPN was the first to report the news.

Ankalaev is coming off back-to-back stoppage wins over Ion Cutelaba. After a controversial finish in their first meeting at UFC on ESPN+ 27 in February, Ankalaev left no doubt in the rematch when he knocked out Cutelaba in Round 1 at UFC 254.

Since rejoining the UFC roster in 2018, Krylov has split his past four appearances. He is coming off a win over Johnny Walker at UFC on ESPN+ 28 in March in a bout that saw him register the first decision victory of his career.

Krylov was scheduled to face Volkan Oezdemir at UFC Fight Night on Oct. 17, but the bout was scrapped after Oezdemir withdrew due to a knee injury. Now he’ll face Ankalaev on Feb. 27 in a pivotal bout for both men.

Dominick Reyes vs. Jiri Prochazka
