Diego Lopes Calls For Rematch With Movsar Evloev

Las Vegas – UFC featherweight Diego Lopes is already calling out the name and date for his next fight following his victory at UFC 300 over Sodiq Yusuff on Saturday night.

“Movsar (Evloev) is next International Fight Week. Give him the rematch,” Lopes told reporters including Cageside Press at his post-fight scrum.

“I think that the first fight speaks for itself and I think that the fights that came after that I think they say I deserve a rematch against Movsar.”

Lopes (24-6) fought Evloev on short notice at UFC 288 in May 2023. He lost the fight by decision, but had Evloev in trouble in a few different spot. Evloev had taken to social media to speak on Lopes and his rise.

“I think it’s actually really funny that he actually went on social media and said that my greatest feat was actually to have a fight against him. I went back on social media and say well your greatest feat is make Dana White like a fight that you’re involved. It’s just that I was involved,” Lopes said.

“I like to call him Decision-Man. I even coined a term Mr.Decision. I think his work speaks for himself, and my work speaks for itself.”
