The fourth number in the UFC featherweight rating, Zabit Magomedsharipov, still expects to meet the winner of the title fight between Max Halloway and Alex Volkanovsky, but if this does not happen, Yair Rodriguez is not the only option for the next fight.
“Obviously, we will be waiting for the result of the duel between Holloway and Volkanovsky. Let's see how it all ends, ” said Rizvan Magomedov, manager of Magomedsharipov in an interview with FightWorldTurkey. “If after that we will have the opportunity to fight for the title, of course, we will do it. If not, we would like to fight with Yair Rodriguez. The winner or loser of the fight between the Korean Zombies and Brian Ortega is also a good option. This time it will be a five-round fight, and Zabit will prove to everyone that he is ready for this ”
