Nassurdine Imamov’s two consecutive victories in the 2021 middleweight division led him to his biggest fight of his young career. According to MMA Fighting data, The 25-year-old Dagestani, will face former champion contender Kelvin Gastelum in the 185-pound weight class at UFC 273 on April 9.

Imamov (11-3, 3-1 UFC) defeated Edmen Shahbazyan by technical knockout in UFC 268 in November. His only defeat in the octagon was in the hands of Phil House in February last year.

Gastelum (16-8, 1 NC), 11-8, 1 NC UFC) has not had much luck in recent times, missing a total of five of the last six fights. Honestly, it was against a high level of competition. He threw five-round decisions to Robert Whittaker and Jared Cannonier in the last two.

The TUF 17 winner is currently tenth in the middleweight division and Imamov is 12th.

UFC 273 will consist of two championship fights, with Alexander Volkanovsky defending his lightweight title against a Korean zombie, while Petr Yan and Aljameyn Sterling finally fighting for the lightweight title.
