Belal Muhammad vs. Lyman Good added to UFC 249 in Brooklyn

A welterweight banger is headed to Brooklyn.

Belal Muhammad will take on Lyman Good at UFC 249, according to two people with knowledge of the booking who informed MMA Junkie but requested anonymity since the UFC has yet to make an announcement.

UFC 249 takes place April 18 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims expected on ESPN and ESPN+/UFC Fight Pass.

The two were scheduled to face off at UFC 205 in 2016, but Good was forced out due to a U.S. Anti-Doping Agency violation stemming from an out-of-competition drug test.

Winner of six of his last seven, Muhammad (16-3 MMA, 6-3 UFC) is coming off back-to-back victories over Curtis Millender and Takashi Sato. His rear-naked choke finish over Sato last September at UFC 242 was his first career submission win.

Good (21-5 MMA, 3-2 UFC) has split his last four appearances, with both wins over Ben Saunders and Chance Rencountre coming by way of stoppage. He will compete in his home state of New York for the fourth time in his UFC career.

With the addition, the UFC 249 lineup now includes:

  • Champ Khabib Nurmagomedov vs. Tony Ferguson – for lightweight title
  • Jessica Andrade vs. Rose Namajunas
  • Uriah Hall vs. Ronaldo Souza
  • Ben Rothwell vs. Gian Villante
  • Ottman Azaitar vs. Khama Worthy
  • Calvin Kattar vs. Jeremy Stephens
  • Shamil Abdurakhimov vs. Ciryl Gane
  • Sijara Eubanks vs. Sarah Moras
