One to Watch at UFC 242: Lerone Murphy

Lerone “The Miracle” Murphy (8-0) debuts at UFC 242 with a tough test, staring down a Dagestani in the desert.  The Featherweight fighting out of Stockport, England is a top prospect in Europe due to his exceptional striking acumen.

The All Powers Gym product started amateur MMA in 2014, securing his one and only submission in his first-ever fight.  The professional ranks came calling for Lerone in 2016 with a 4 and 0 amateur record. His skills easily pass the eye test; supreme athleticism and instincts had English fans truly excited for his rise.

Still undefeated in 2019, His elite boxing skills scored him five knockouts in round one, two inside the first minute.  These feats earned Murphy a UFC contract outright and September 7th offers him a seismic card to make shockwaves.   He has a mean opening matchup against Khabib Nurmagomedov’s best friend, Zubaira Tukhugov (16-4) at UFC 242 in Abu Dhabi!
