Niall McGrath revealed a video interview with Muhammad, where Muhammad revealed that Brady is off the card. Muhammad is expected to remain on the December 19 card at this time, as UFC officials are seeking a replacement for him to fight.
Muhammad (17-3-0) enters the contest riding a three-fight winning streak with those wins coming over Curtis Millender, Takashi Sato and Lyman Good. Muhammad hasn’t been defeated in almost two years, with that last loss coming to Geoff Neal at UFC Fight Night Brooklyn. Muhammad has competed 20 times as a professional MMA fighter and 14 of those bouts went the distance.
