The first fight of Umar Nurmagomedov in the UFC.

Officially, Umar Nurmagomedov (12-0) will hold his debut fight in the UFC on July 25 on the artificial island "Yas" in Abu Dhabi, against Nathaniel Wood (16-4).

Umar spent the last fight on November 23 at the GFC 20 in Uzbekistan, against the Argentine fighter Brian Gonzalez, having gained a landslide victory in the 1st round by strangulation from behind, and this was the 3rd defense of the GFC title in the lightest weight category.
