Misha Cirkunov has another chance to score his first win at 185 pounds.
This new matchup keeps both fighters active after Cirkunov and Turman saw recent matchups fall through. Cirkunov was to fight Makhmud Muradov on Feb. 26 before Muradov was forced to withdraw due to a hand injury, while Turman lost a booking at UFC 270 when opponent Rodolfo Vieira withdrew for undisclosed reasons.
Cirkunov was unsuccessful in his first middleweight fight after dropping down from the light heavyweight division, losing a split decision to Krzysztof Jotko in October. The Latvian-Canadian is just 2-5 since winning his first four UFC fights.
Turman snapped a two-fight skid in August with a split decision win over Sam Alvey. His UFC record sits at 2-3.
