The UFC card on August 29th just got a massive main event. Zabit Magomedsharipov vs. Yair Rodriguez is an incredible fight at 145 pounds. The winner between these two should be on the short list behind Aljamain “Funk Master” Sterling, to fight featherweight champion Alexander “The Great” Volkanovski. However, Dana White has recently showed an interest in a trilogy fight between Alex Volkanovski and Max Holloway. The awesome featherweight scrap will take place at a UFC Fight Night event at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas.
Zabit Magomedsharipov (6-0 UFC, 18-1 MMA), has asserted his dominance over the UFC featherweight division. He is currently riding an impressive 14 fight win streak. With notable wins over Brandon Davis, Jeremy Stephens and Calvin Kattar, a clash with Yair Rodriguez was inevitable.
Yair “El Pantera” Rodriguez (8-1-1 UFC, 13-2-1 MMA) is one of the worlds top feather weights. “El Pantera” seemed to truly come into his own during his classic 5 round war with “The Korean Zombie.” Boasting wins over Dan Hooker, Andre Fili, Alex Caceres, B.J. Penn, Chan Sung Jung and Jeremy Stephens, Rodriguez is seemingly always knocking on the door to a title shot.
