UFC featherweight Ricardo Ramos has a new date and opponent for his octagon return.
Initially set to face Zubaira Tukhugov at this past weekend’s UFC Fight Night show in Las Vegas before Tukhugov withdrew from the fight, Ramos will now fight Bill Algeo at UFC Vegas 24 on April 17, multiple people with knowledge of the booking told MMA Fighting. MMAjunkie first reported the news.
The former Ring of Combat featherweight titleholder scored finishes in nine of his 13 pre-UFC wins.
Ramos (14-3) was riding a two-fight winning streak under the UFC banner over Journey Newson and Eduardo Garagorri before a stoppage defeat to Lerone Murphy on Fight Island in 2020, dropping his overall UFC record to 5-2.
