UFC fighter Magomedsharipov to miss at least 6 months
Russian UFC fighter Zabit Magomedsharipov will have to miss at least six months of competition due to health problems, the fighter’s coach Mansur Uchakayev said.
"We currently, I speak on Zabit’s behalf, have no desire to train and fight. There are certain health problems now and they need to be addressed. We will now primarily deal with Zabit’s health. Let’s see when he recovers and everything will be clear then," TASS cited the coach as saying.
Earlier, Magomedsharipov was taken off the UFC rankings due to a prolonged pause in competition. It was also reported that he could retire as he has not competed since fall 2019.
The Russian, 30, has 18 victories and only one loss in MMA.
