UFC Fight Night: Dolidze v Imavov: Fight date, time, undercard & how to watch

Roman Dolidze and Nassourdine Imavov face off on 3rd February looking to kick off their 2024 by pushing themselves into the middleweight title picture.

Both come into this bout after a frustrating and winless last calendar year.

Dolidze fought only once in 2023, losing to Martin Vettori by unanimous decision at UFC 286 in March. The 35 year old was slated to fight both Derek Brunson and Jared Cannonier later in the year, with both fights falling off due to Brunson signing with the PFL and an injury to Cannonier. 

Imavov also endured a fruitless 2023, kicking off the year with a loss to now champion Sean Strickland at the Apex in January. This ended a three-fight win streak which saw him gain much hype in what looked like a potential run at the belt.  

The Frenchman was able to return to the Octagon at UFC 286 in June, however an accidental clash of heads with opponent Chris Curtis in the second round ruled that fight a no-contest.

UFC Fight Night: Dolidze v Imavov undercard

The co-main event for UFC Fight Night: Dolidze v Imavov sees two top 15 lightweights do battle as Drew Dober faces trash talking Brazilian Renato Moicano. 

Both men have a kill or be killed attitude, with Dober’s fights having only seen the judges scorecards once in his last 11 fights, while Moicano’s bouts have seen the final bell in only two of his last 11. 

Both are looking to get themselves back in the win column after defeat last time out and push back on towards the top 10 of the division.

Top 10 women’s flyweights look to enter title contention as #8 ranked Viviane Araujo faces #10 ranked Natalia Silva. 

Current champion Alexa Grasso earned a title shot with a win over Araujo back in October 2022 and while the Brazilian lost again to Amanda Ribas in her next outing, she bounced back with a unanimous decision victory over Jennifer Maia last time out.  

Silva on the other hand is unbeaten in four UFC fights so far, last seen defeating Andrea Lee over the distance at UFC 292 in August.

There is also female British interest on the Main Card as Molly “Meatball” McCann returns to action. 

The popular Liverpool fighter faces a rematch with Romania’s Diana Belbita after recording a unanimous decision win in their first meeting back in 2019. 

McCann is currently on a two-fight losing skid after defeats to Erin Blanchfield and Julia Stoliarenko.

Another notable name on this card is Themba Garimbo, who revealed he had gone into his last fight with just $7 dollars left in his bank account. 

After Garimbo recorded his victory over Takashi Sato, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was so inspired by his story that he bought the Zimbabwe born fighter a house.
