UFC Fighter Lerone Murphy (8-0-1)

MMA fighters are savages. They are the best athletes on the planet earth, however, they are also human and enjoy things just like you and me.

Undefeated British featherweight Lerone “The Miracle” Murphy is a very good prospect and a solid mixed martial artist to be fighting in the stacked UFC featherweight division. He is riding a 12 fight undefeated streak dating back to his amateur career.

Murphy made his UFC debut in 2019 at UFC 242 against Zubaira Tukhugov. The fight ended in a split draw.

“The Miracle” was expected to face Gabriel Benitez on March 23, in London but the event was canceled due to COVID-19.

After almost a year off, Murphy returns to action on July 15, against Ricardo Ramos on ‘Fight Island’. He will return to the same place where he made his first and only UFC appearance in Abu Dhabi.
