Draws Elliott in late-June

March 24, 2021
Mudaerji is in line to take on Tim Elliott in a flyweight matchup at the UFC event scheduled for June 26, USA Today reports.
ANALYSIS
Mudaerji has won his last three UFC fights on the basis of high-volume and technical striking, so it's not too surprising to see him enter this fight with statistical advantages over Elliott in average strikes landed and average strikes absorbed (albeit over a much smaller sample size). The question here will be whether he can defend the takedown, as Eliott connects on an impressive 4.01 takedowns per 15 minutes of fight time, though Mudaerji does have a respectable 77 percent takedown defense. If he can stay upright, he'll likely be able to use a six-inch reach advantage to pick Elliott apart, but don't expect Elliott to stop shooting takedowns as long as he has his wits about him (or even afterwards).

Mudaerji defeated Zarrukh Adashev via unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 30-27) at UFC Fight Island 8 on Wednesday.
ANALYSIS
Mudaerji came into this fight as nearly a (-500) betting favorite but ate a shot early that caught his attention. While he gained some respect fo his opponent, it didn't take long to find his range, particularly with the leg kicks. Mudaerji likely won the first round on volume, but started to find some power in Round 2. He also ate some, as Adashev landed three big shots while breaking away from a takedown attempt, and later another big right that nearly sent Mudaerji to the canvas. Not long afterwards, a counter check hook from Mudaerji got him right back into the fight and wobbled Adashev. Entering Round 3, Mudaerji took his spot at the center of the Octagon. He continued utilizing feints to set traps for Adashev, setting up shots while staying out of damage range. While this wasn't as dominant as his last two fights, Mudaerji still did what he had to in order to coast to victory.

Mudaerji will take on Zarrukh Adashev in a flyweight matchup at UFC Fight Island 8 on Jan. 20, MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Mudaerji will compete in his second fight at the flyweight division after displaying impressive power when he defeated Malcolm Gordon via KO (punches) at 0:44 of Round 1 at UFC on ESPN 18 in late November. Adashev made his UFC debut on short notice in June, losing to Tyson Nam via KO (punches) at 0:32 of Round 1 at UFC Fight Night in Las Vegas. Mudaerji will be competing on short notice after Jeff Molina was forced to withdraw from his scheduled matchup against Adashev due to COVID-19. However, he carries plenty of momentum after his solid debut at flyweight. Mudaerji has an advantage in reach, but Adashev carries an edge in height.

Mudaejri defeated Malcolm Gordon via KO (punches) at 0:44 of Round 1 at UFC on ESPN 18 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
It's the first UFC finish in three appearances for Mudaerji, who now has 11 knockouts in 13 professional victories. It also happened to be the third-fastest finish in UFC flyweight history, according to the telecast. This was easy work for the 24-year-old prospect, who used his reach to his advantage and landed several straight lefts from a distance. One buckled his opponent, who had no interest in taking this any further. No follow-up shots were necessary. It was an easy call to give Mudaerji a $50,000 Performance of the night bonus here. Mudaerji seems to have a ton of power for a flyweight, and his huge length could spell problems for plenty of the ranked contenders at 125 pounds.

Mudaerji is in line to take on Malcolm Gordon in a flyweight matchup at the UFC event scheduled for Nov. 28, Nolan King of MMAJunkie.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Mudaerji had a March matchup against Bruno Silva cancelled due to the pandemic, so his last appearance under the UFC banner was a unanimous-decision victory over Andre Soukhamthath in August of 2019. That fight was up at bantamweight, but it looks like he's headed back to his natural weight class of 125 pounds for this one. Gordon has just one UFC fight to his name, losing a short-notice debut to Amir Albazi in July. Mudaerji has a one-inch advantage in both height and reach.
