Stephens And Magomedsharipov’s Intense Face-Off
UFC is gearing up the most stacked fight card of the year as UFC 235 Pay-Per-View event is set to go down tonight (Sat., March 2, 2019) from inside the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The main card features two title fights, in the main header where reigning champion Jon Jones will be defending his light heavyweight title against rising contender Anthony Smith. Meanwhile, in the co-header, current welterweight kingpin Tyron Woodley will put his crown on the line against Kamaru Usman.
Former ONE and Bellator champion Ben Askren will be making his UFC debut against former UFC champion Robbie Lawler on the main card.
One of the most highly anticipated featherweight fight will headline the regular preliminary card between Zabit Magomedsharipov and Jeremy Stephens. Zabit is riding high since making his UFC debut back in 2017, amassed four straight victories and currently on a 12-fight winning streak.
Moreover “Lil Heathen,” is looking to come back in the winning column after suffering a knockout loss to Jose Aldo last summer.
Zabit and Stephen have been on each other’s throat in the leading up to their fight, and this match will be one hell of an entertainment.
Last night promotion held the final ceremonial staredown where Zabit and Stephens had an intense moment. Check out below.
