Mederos will take on Nazim Sadykhov at UFC Denver on Jul. 13 in place of Chris Duncan (undisclosed), Marcel Dorff of Eurosport.nl reports.
ANALYSIS
Mederos will get his second UFC fight after coming off a win by unanimous decision against Landon Quinones, previously appearing on Dana White's Contender Series last October. The American lightweight takes on 30-year-old Sadykhov, who holds a 2-0-1 record in the UFC.
Takes decision in UFC debut

February 3, 2024
Mederos defeated Landon Quinones via unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Making his UFC debut on the heels of a first-round knockout win on Dana White's Contender Series last October, Mederos started slowly before beginning to find his range. He seemed to lack the physicality of Quinones, but he also clearly won Round 2. With the fight up in the air, Mederos failed on all five of his Round 3 takedown attempts, but all three judges still gave him the frame. Overall, this fight was closer than the scorecards would lead you to believe. Still, Mederos walked out of the UFC Apex with a win in his company debut. The 27-year-old Texan should be back in the Octagon in short order.

Mederos will fight Landon Quinones at UFC Vegas 85 on Feb. 3, Marcel Dorff of Eurosport.nl reports.
ANALYSIS
Mederos earned a UFC contract after defeating Issa Isakov in a Contender Series fight in October, and he now has a date in place for his UFC debut. The 26-year-old Mederos boasts an 8-1 professional record and will be matched up with an opponent who is still searching for his first UFC victory.
Earns contract with early knockout
LightweightUFC
October 15, 2023
Mederos defeated Issa Isakov via KO (knee) at 4:09 of Round 1 at Dana White's Tuesday Night Contender Series. After the show, he was one of five fighters to be awarded an official UFC contract.
ANALYSIS
Mederos was in control from the opening minute of this one, landing thunderous leg kicks and throwing combinations at his opponent until he forced a predictable takedown attempt that was received by the knockout blow. Mederos showcased his athleticism and power throughout, while also demonstrating excellent balance when his opponent would try to take him to the mat. All of this adds up to a prospect who may be one to watch in the lightweight division.
