Featherweight strikers Zabit Magomedsharipov and Calvin Kattar went toe-to-toe earlier tonight (Sat., Nov. 9, 2019) at UFC Fight Night 163 live on ESPN+ from inside CSKA Arena in Moscow, Russia, in a wild main event showdown. Despite being scheduled for just three rounds, both men exchanged some wildly entertaining blows as “ZaBeast” outlasted Kattar to the tune of a unanimous decision win (highlights HERE).
In addition to the featherweight headliner, heavyweight contender Alexander Volkov got back in the UFC win column with a dominant effort against short-notice opponent Greg Hardy, welterweight striker Danny Roberts recorded a fantastic one-punch knockout win over Russian prospect Zelim Imadaev, light heavyweight bruiser Magomed Ankalaev smoked former kickboxer Dalcha Lungiambula with a deadly front kick knockout, middleweight Karl Roberson pulled out a submission finish against talented Russian youngster Roman Kopylov, and German fighter David Zawada pulled off the biggest upset of the night as he submitted Khabib Nurmagomedov’s cousin, Abubakar Nurmagomedov, via first-round triangle choke.
