Fast-rising lightweight Rustam Khabilov has his next matchup.
Unbeaten in his last six, Khabilov (23-3) has not tasted defeat since dropping a split decision to Adriano Martins almost four years ago. His recent victories include decision nods over Kajan Johnson, Desmond Green, and Leandro Silva. The 32-year-old Russian is 9-2 inside the Octagon.
Ferreira, 34, is on a success streak of his own. The Brazilian defeated Kyle Nelson by second-round TKO at UFC 231 in December to pick up a third consecutive win following a TKO of Jared Gordon in February and unanimous decision win over Olivier Aubin-Mercier back in January 2016. His UFC record stands at 5-2 and he is 14-2 overall as a pro.
UFC Fight Night 145 takes place at the O2 Arena in Prague, Czech Republic, and it will air live on the ESPN+ streaming service. A light heavyweight bout between Jan Blachowicz and Thiago Santos is scheduled to serve as the main event.
