THE NEPHEW OF Chechen president Ramzan Kadyrov has reportedly been signed by the Ultimate Fighting Championship and will make his debut in Dublin in October.

Abdul Kerim Edilov is a hot light-heavyweight prospect with a 16-4 record and has won his last 10 fights.

The 23-year-old needed just 36 seconds to beat Leonardo Gosling by TKO in June.

The Russian’s opponent at UFC Fight Night 77, which takes place at the 3 Arena on 24 October, has yet to be confirmed. Joseph Duffy’s lightweight fight with Dustin Poirier is the headline bout.
