This weekend’s upcoming UFC Moscow event takes place across the pond and showcases elite international talent.
The UFC Fight Night 163 main event is headlined by Calvin Kattar vs Russian native, Zabit Magomedsharipov. The Dagestani fighter is yet to lose a UFC fight and last fought Jeremy Stephens, beating him via a unanimous decision victory. With a plethora of combat experience, the former ACB featherweight champion, Madomedsharipov is one of the most respected fighters in the featherweight division.
His opponent, Kattar, joined the UFC in 2017 as a replacement against Andre Fili. In two years, ‘The Boston Finisher’ has showcased his KO punching power, racking up up TKO victories over Shane Burgos, Chris Fishgold and most recently, Ricardo Lamas.
In the co-main event, former NFL player Greg Hardy will take on the Russian heavyweight, Alexander Volkov. Hardy’s two-fight win streak came to an end in his last fight. The bout against Ben Sosoli was overturned to a no-contest due to Hardy’s use of an asthma inhaler. His Russian opponent will also look to regain a winning streak in the heavyweight division after succumbing to the KO power of Derrick Lewis in his last fight.
Heavy hitters Zelim Imadaev and Danny Roberts will also fight it out in a welterweight battle on the main card.
On the prelim card, the lightweight champion, Khabib Nurmagomedov’s cousin, Abubakar Nurmagomedov will make his UFC debut against David Zawada in a welterweight bout.
