Nikita Krylov and Ryan Spann have earned a main event together on February 25th next year, per Mike Bohn and Nolan King.
This 5-round fight takes place in the Light Heavyweight (205 lbs) division.
Ryan Spann holds a professional record of 21-7-0 and is currently ranked #10. His notable wins include Dominick Reyes, Mischa Cirkunov, and Ion Cutelaba.
Nikita Krylov holds a professional record of 29-9-0 and is currently ranked #7. His notable wins include Alexander Gustafsson, Volkanovski Oezdemir, and Johnny Walker.
Krylov has been a strong staple of the UFC's Light Heavyweight top 10, losing only to the best such as Magomed Ankalaev, Paul, Craig, and Jan Blachowicz. His well-rounded style and finishing ability have led to some impressive stats over the years.
Sporting a Superman tattoo on his chest, Ryan Spann brings power into the octagon in every fight. He's 11-2 in his last 13 with losses only to Anthony Smith and Johnny Walker. Of those 11 wins, 9 came by finish, none bigger than his most recent knockout of Dominick Reyes at UFC 281.
These two have enough finishes between them to make several highlight-reel promo videos and have the shortest average fight time in the Light Heavyweight division. The judges will likely not be needed at all.
