Ankalaev (17-1-1 MMA) and Walker (21-7 MMA) originally collided at October’s UFC 294 event in Abu Dhabi, where their fight ended in a no-contest after the Russian tagged the Brazilian with an illegal knee.

Prior to that controversial ending, Magomed Ankalaev was coming off a split draw against Jan Blachowicz in a fight for the promotion’s then-vacant light heavyweight title at UFC 282.

Meanwhile, Johnny Walker had entered his first bout with Ankalaev sporting a three-fight win streak, this after scoring wins over Anthony Smith, Paul Craig and Ion Cutelaba respectively.

UFC Vegas 84 is co-headlined by a lightweight bout featuring fan favorite veteran Jim Miller taking on Gabriel Benitez.
