Muhammad (17-3 MMA, 8-3 UFC) was scheduled to face Brady (13-0 MMA, 3-0 UFC) at the UFC’s Dec. 19 event, but according to Muhammad, Brady has withdrawn.

Still hoping to remain on the card, Muhammad has diverted his attention to Perry (14-6 MMA, 7-6 UFC), who’s also looking for an opponent after Robbie Lawler was forced out of their bout at UFC 255 on Nov. 21.
On the cusp of the top-15 welterweight rankings, Muhammad has won seven of his past eight and is coming off three straight wins over Curtis Millender, Takashi Sato and Lyman Good.
Perry snapped a two-fight skid with a unanimous decision win over Mickey Gall at UFC on ESPN 12 in June. When Lawler pulled out due to injury, Perry called out Khamzat Chimaev, but Chimaev is currently slated to face Leon Edwards in the UFC’s Dec. 19 main event.
