With Sullivan out, Randy Brown now meets Belal Muhammad at UFC 208 in Brooklyn


With George Sullivan off next week’s UFC 208 card in New York, Randy Brown now has a new opponent.

Brown (9-1 MMA, 3-1 UFC) takes on Belal Muhammad in a welterweight bout on the card, UFC officials announced late Friday. Muhammad fills in for Sullivan (17-5 MMA, 3-2 UFC), who was pulled from the event this past week and provisionally suspended for a potential USADA anti-doping violation. (Sullivan has contended a fertility drug is to blame for the potential infraction and said he believes the incident will be cleared up.)

Featuring the promotion’s inaugural women’s featherweight title fight, UFC 208 takes place Feb. 11 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.

Muhammad started his career 9-0 to get called by the UFC after winning Titan FC’s welterweight title. He dropped his promotional debut to Alan Jouban in July 2016, but rebounded with a third-round TKO of Augusto Montano at UFC Fight Night 94 in September. But at UFC 205 in November in New York City, he was knocked out by Vicente Luque and will be looking to rebound on short notice against Brown.

Brown, who lives in Queens, has back-to-back wins. After starting his career a perfect 6-0, including a welterweight title for Ring of Combat, he signed with the UFC and won his promotional debut against Matt Dwyer. Then he had a slip-up against Michael Graves and was submitted in the second round at UFC on FOX 19. But this past September, he submitted Erick Montano at UFC Fight Night 94 and followed that up with a TKO of Brian Camozzi at UFC Fight Night 102, also in New York.

With the change, UFC 208 currently includes:

  • Holly Holm vs. Germaine de Randamie – for inaugural women’s featherweight title
  • Derek Brunson vs. Anderson Silva
  • Tim Boetsch vs. Ronaldo Souza
  • Jared Cannonier vs. Glover Teixeira
  • Jim Miller vs. Dustin Poirier
  • Wilson Reis vs. Ulka Sasaki
  • Nik Lentz vs. Islam Makhachev
  • Jarred Brooks vs. Ian McCall
  • Marcin Tybura vs. TBA
  • Roan Carneiro vs. Ryan LaFlare
  • Rick Glenn vs. Phillipe Nover
  • Randy Brown vs. Belal Muhammad
