With Movsar Evloev injured and forced to withdraw, Ilia Topuria steps in to face Bryce Mitchell on December 10th at UFC 282 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas per Topuria.

This bout will take place in the Featherweight (145 lbs) division.

Bryce Mitchell holds a professional record of 15-0-0 and is currently ranked #9. His notable wins include Edson Barboza, Andre Fili, and Charles Rosa.

Ilia Topuria holds a professional record of 12-0-0 and is currently ranked #14. His notable wins include Ryan Hall, Damon Jackson, and Youseff Zalal.

Bryce ‘Thugnasty’ Mitchell is well-known for his custom camo fight shorts and heavy grappling style. His last fight was a mauling of Edson Barboza that earned him a 30-25 scorecard against the legend. His relentless pace combined with an ever-improving standup game makes him a tough challenge for any fighter.

Ilia Topuria is also a strong grappler but is more known for his heavy hands in the UFC. After submitting the first 7 opponents he faced, Ilia made a case to enter the UFC with a stunning knockout and has continued to do so, putting his last 3 opponents to sleep.

These two are among the biggest prospects in the sport and will look to steal all the hype from one another.
