On October 12 Kudryashov wants to debut in MMA. At the same time, it does not mean that he ends up with a professional boxing.

"Most likely, I will fight in MMA at Fight Nights on the Moscow card on October 12th. As for boxing, I spoke to Umar Kremlev about a rematch with Ilunga Makabu, and it is an interesting option. At the same time, I do not say that Dmitry Kudryashov finished with boxing and moved to MMA. I just want to try," Kudryashov commented on his decision.

Kudryashov's opponent in his MMA debut is not named yet.
