Russian MMA star Zabit Magomedsharipov defeated Calvin Kattar in his homecoming fight at UFC Fight Night 163 which took place at the CSKA Arena in Moscow, Russia.
Zabit secured a unanimous decision victory 29-28 on all three scorecards. The fight, however, was a very close one and Zabit had to fight hard for his victory.
With his recent win, Zabit has extended his winning record to six straight fights in the UFC. He now wants to fight the winner of Max Holloway and Alexander Volkanovski who are fighting at UFC 245 in Las Vegas.

“I’m 6-0 in the UFC, and obviously I’d like to face the winner of Holloway versus Volkanovski,” Magomedsharipov said. “I promise if I get that fight, I will be ready for five rounds.
“I wasn’t able to prepare fully for this fight because I had staph infections and stuff, but I promise I’ll be better next time.”
Zabit defeated Jeremy Stephens in his last fight at UFC 235 in March via unanimous decision and before that he defeated Brandon Davis via submission at UFC 228.
