UFC Moscow: Zabit vs Kattar - Major Fights
The UFC event marathon is no respite. The most famous octagon in the world crosses the world to land again in the Russian capital. CSKA Arena will host UFC Fight Night Moscow, an event that will be headed by one of the organization's top star contenders.
Russian featherweight Zabit Magomedsharipov will have a chance to head an event for the first time and will do so in front of his compatriots. The opponent to try to curb him will be the American Calvin Kattar, who also seeks a jump in the division ranking.
Alexander Volkov was initially scheduled for the main fight, but saw his position on the card change with the injury of former heavyweight champion Junior Cigano. In place of the Brazilian, comes the controversial Greg Hardy.
The third UFC event in Russia will have a handful of representatives of that country's strong MMA. For middleweight Zelim Imadaev faces Danny Roberts, while Ramazan Emeev catches Anthony Rocco Martin. For the light heavyweight division, Khadis Ibragimov faces Ed Herman and Shamil Gamzatov opens the main card against Brazilian Klidson Abreu.
