The third number of the UFC featherweight rating, Zabit Magomedsharipov, explained to his fans why he will not fight on August 29 at the tournament in Las Vegas.
“Greetings to all! I want to inform you that my fight will not be on August 29, ”the Russian fighter wrote on Instagram. “Rodriguez jumped out of the top 5 to replace anyone. Fighting those who are even lower in the rankings is a step backwards. I asked for either a belt fight or a fight with some interesting opponent with a name. There were no offers, so we turn off our camp and return to Russia. For the second time in a row, the UFC breaks off preparation at the final stage. Thanks to everyone who supported and waited for this fight. The team and I did our best “
Recall that a potential challenger fight between Zabit Magomedsharipov and Yair Rodriguez was supposed to lead the UFC event in Las Vegas on August 29, however, this week it became known that the Mexican was injured and dropped out of the tournament.
