Krzysztof Jotko out, Kevin Holland meets Makhmud Muradov at UFC on ESPN+ 39 (Updated)

Krzysztof Jotko won’t be competing this month.

The UFC middleweight has been forced to withdraw from his bout against Makhmud Muradov on Oct. 31 at UFC on ESPN+ 39 in Las Vegas. Jotko (22-4 MMA, 9-4 UFC) announced the news Sunday.

Shortly after, MMA Junkie confirmed Kevin Holland (19-5 MMA, 6-2 UFC) will step in for Jotko against Muradov in less than two weeks following an initial report from Cageside Press.

“Unfortunately, my next fight against Makhmud won’t happen,” Jotko posted on Twitter. “This camp wasn’t easy from the start. Few days ago at sparring, I broke my toe, so there is no way to fight. So sorry @MakhmudMuradov that I’m out from the fight with 2 weeks notice. Hope to see you soon in the octagon!”

Holland has three straight wins, all in 2020. He knocked out current viral sensation Joaquin Buckley in August and followed that up with a decision win over Darren Stewart in September.

Jotko was coming off a decision win over Eryk Anders in May. The victory extended Jotko’s winning streak to three. Prior to that, the Polish fighter had three straight losses.
