Zabit Magomedsharipov vs. Calvin Kattar was exactly what was advertised at UFC Moscow.
The two fighters met in a featherweight bout at the UFC Moscow event on Saturday (November 9th) from the CSKA Arena in Moscow, Russia that aired on ESPN+.
This fight played out just as the UFC had hyped it. While it was a striking affair, it was quite entertaining with both fighters landing some big shots and making their own moments. After three hard-fought rounds, Zabit got the unanimous decision win.
