According to Zabit’s Instagram post, he recently had an infection which affected his camp and preparation for the fight with Kattar. He needs more time to recover from an infection and that’s why they asked UFC to re-book this fight for a later date.

Как вы уже знаете, к сожалению возвращение в клетку немного откладывается. Серьёзное воспаление от занесённой инфекции привело к тому, что несколько дней я буквально не мог ходить. Именно из-за этого было принято решение пройти лечение и перенести бой. Так что до встречи в Москве👊🏽 спасибо всем за поддержку✊🏽 #UFCFightNight163
