Oh praise and thank you Fight Gods! The UFC tweeted out a fight that any fan of violence will want to see. Zabit Magomedsharipov will take on Jeremy Stephens at UFC 235 on March 2, 2019. At the moment, the main card is hosting a fight between Robbie Lawler vs Ben Askren, which was moved from UFC 233 when the event was cancelled.
Zabit vs Stephens is a fight fan’s delight. In fact, this fight can’t come soon enough. Initially, Zabit was scheduled to fight Yair Rodriguez at UFC 228 but Rodriguez pulled out of the fight, citing injury.
Stephens was on a roll with a few huge wins in the featherweight division. His streak was halted when he took on All-Violence 1st Team Hall of Famer, Jose Aldo. Looking to get back on track, Zabit is standing in Stephens’ way.
The 2 are set to square off in Las Vegas at the T-Mobile Arena and is an incredible addition to what will most likely become a stellar card.
