Bagautinov is currently sits at No. 12 in the latest USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie MMA flyweight rankings. “Puncher” fought seven times under the UFC banner, including a failed bid for the flyweight title but was released from the promotion following a November 2016 loss to Kyoji Horiguchi. Bagautinov stumbled in his first post-octagon outing, suffering a knockout loss to Tyson Nam but has since bounced back with back-to-back wins over Pedro Nobre and Danny Martinez.
“Taz” Young is looking to rebound from a November 2017 majority-decision loss to Daniel Barez at BAMMA 32. Prior to that setback, Young stood at 5-1 in his previous six outings.
