 After the absolutely unforgettable event that was UFC 244, the UFC backs their bags and heads halfway across the world for their return to Russia. After some shuffling at the top of the card due to an injury to former champion Junior dos Santos, we’re left with a main event that surely won’t disappoint. In a featherweight contest rescheduled from UFC Boston, Zabit Magomedsharipov (17-1) will take on Calvin Kattar (20-3) in a bout that could lead to a title shot for either fighter in the near future.

#UFCMoscow will air on ESPN+ starting with preliminary bouts at 11:00 AM EST this Saturday, November 9th, 2019. Here’s a breakdown of the action to come:

 

Home Field Advantage

Originally scheduled for UFC Boston back on October 18th, Magomedsharipov vs Kattar was rescheduled for this event when the Russian pulled out of the original bout with a minor injury. Kattar, who was born and raised in Methuen, Massachusetts (just a stone’s throw from Boston), agrees to cede home field advantage to his opponent and head to Russia. In doing so, he puts his two-fight win streak on the line as he looks to make a steep climb.

Although he’s gaining the home crowd, Zabit is not without risk in this fight either. 5-0 in the UFC, Magomedsharipov actually takes a step down in opponent for this headliner. After beating now #9 ranked Jeremy Stephens, Magomedsharipov will risk his top 5 ranking against #11 ranked Kattar.

 

Mr. Controversy

His signing was heavily debated. His first bout – jeered. The choice of opponents – criticized. His most recent result – laughed at.

Like him or not, Greg Hardy’s (5-1, 1 NC) UFC run has been surrounded by controversy, making it almost impossible not to tune in and see what happens next. What is happening next is a short notice bout against top 10 ranked Alexander Volkov (30-7). The former Bellator champion was set to face Junior dos Santos, who had to pull out due to a staph infection. Hardy, desperate to wipe away the stain of inhaler-gate, jumped at the opportunity to be that replacement.

Is it his time for a step up in competition? Is he ready? Is this the right move?

You never know with Greg Hardy, but what you do know is that you have to watch it.
