The potential flyweight bout has been targeted for UFC 304. If the UFC books the bout, it will happen at the new Co-op Live Arena in Manchester this July. However, the UFC officials have not declared any decisive matchups just yet.

The UK’s fighters in the UFC are eager to jump in on the fight card and fight on home ground. Interim heavyweight champion Tom Aspinall will likely headline the main event on the fight card. If not, welterweight champion Leon Edwards will take that spot.

Muhammad Mokaev ranks #6 on the UFC’s flyweight rankings. With six back-to-back wins in the promotion, he has yet to taste his first defeat. Meanwhile, potential opponent Manel Kape recently secured a win against Felipe dos Santos last year. If Mokaev beats Kape, it will put him well in line for a title shot against division champion Alexandre Pantoja.
