Two exciting prospects battle in the prelims of UFC in London in a Flyweight matchup between young British-Russian Muhammad Mokaev and LFA champion Charles Johnson. Mokaev - who was brought to England as a child - made his promotional debut in March at the O2 announcing himself to the world with a 58 seconds stoppage. Charles Johnson, at 31, is arriving late to the UFC but has an excellent record in regional promotions and will be a very stern test for the young Mokaev who although will be fighting for the second time in UFC has already been tipped as a future champion.

After a successful amateur career, “The Punisher” arrived at the UFC in style with a resounding first-round win. His debut at 21 years old means that he is the youngest fighter in the UFC. Coming from a wrestling background, he is an excellent grappler and has also developed respectable striking skills.

Mokaev has been touted as a future champion due to his well-decorated amateur and undefeated pro career which stretches to over a 28-match streak. Winning this fight will propel him into the Flyweight rankings.

The LFA Flyweight champion will finally make his UFC debut at 31 years old after trying to get a contract for a while. Taking the LFA championship off Yuma Horiuchi in July 2021, “InnerG” has successfully defended the title twice, including a fifth-round stoppage win over Carlos Mota last January at LFA 122.

Johnson at 31 is a veteran mixed martial artist and boxer. He is currently on a 4-match streak. Primarily a Striker, his punching is his best weapon and he boasts a lot of power which he can carry into the latter rounds. He is also willing to stalk his opponent around the Octagon. His main weakness will be his poor take-down defense.
