UFC signs ACB champion featherweight Zabit Magomedsharipov to a multi-fight deal

The ACB featherweight champion Zabit Magomedsharipov has signed with the UFC.

The MMA Kings reported the bout first on twitter which was followed by a report from Ariel Helwani of MMAFighting.

Magomedsharipov won the vacant ACB featherweight title by earning a first-round TKO win over Sheikh-Magomed Arapkhanov at Absolute Championship Berkut 31: Magomedsharip.

Magomedsharipov then successfully defended his strap by earning another first-round TKO win, this time over Valdines Silva at Absolute Championship Berkut 45: Siberia vs. Caucasus.

Helwani is also reporting that Magomedsharipov’s debut isn’t finalised at this time, but the promotion is hoping he kicks off his UFC career sooner rather than later.
