Zabit Magomedsharipov Hopes To Get A Rescheduled Bout With Yair Rodriguez
UFC Denver will be remembered for one of the best UFC fights of all time between Chan Sung Jung and Yair Rodriguez. The match was amazing, both fighters were throwing everything they had. It would be very difficult to score, but “El Pantera” made a spectacular move in the last second of the match. “The Korean Zombie” was chasing him. The Mexican ducked under to the left, went under his right hand and landed a reverse upward elbow. This fabulous strike landed straight to Korean’s chin and put him to sleep instantly. I have never seen this move before.
Zabit Magomedshapirov was slated to fight Yair Rodriguez at UFC 228 on September 8, 2018. “El Pantera” had to pull out due to an injury, so Dagestani fighter fought Brandon Davis. “ZaBeast” defeated “Killer B” via Suloev stretch, which is also a very rare submission.
Zabit Magomedsharipov (16-1 MMA, 4-0 UFC) constantly tries to get a rematch versus Yair Rodriguez. After UFC Fight Night 139, “ZaBeast” went to his Twitter and wrote a message for “El Pantera”. The Russian fighter also mentioned UFC president Dana White and matchmaker Sean Shelby.
