Zabit didn’t reveal the name of his next opponent but we will take a guess that he will most likely fight Yair Rodriguez in August. At this point, it looks like UFC’s featherweight division will be playing out this way: there will be a rematch between the current champion Alexander Volkanovski and Max Holloway; Brian Ortega will face Korean Zombie; Zabit vs Yair Rodriguez.
Zabit Magomedsharipov is currently undefeated in the UFC (6-0 UFC record). In his last fight in November 2019, Zabit defeated Calvin Kattar via unanimous decision.
