Where to watch UFC Fight Night 163: Magomedsharipov vs Kattar
Zabit Magomedsharipov finally gets the chance to fight Calvin Kattar after their initial clash was rescheduled.
UFC is travelling to Russia for Fight Night 163, featuring an intriguing headline bout and a highly-anticipated heavyweight showdown. The event will be held at the CSKA Arena in Moscow and offer a card packed with local talent, so MMA fans have plenty to look forward to this weekend.
In the top billing at UFC Fight Night 163 Zabit Magomedsharipov will seek an important win against Calvin Kattar in what's shaping up to be a featherweight bout to remember.
Meanwhile, the co-main event sees Greg Hardy take on former Bellator champion Alexander Volkov.
Volkov will be fighting in front of his countrymen so it's expected he'll give it his all, especially since he lost his last fight against Derrick Lewis in late 2018, despite dominating. Volkov was initially supposed to face Junior dos Santos, but he pulled out of the event due to medical issues.
On the other hand, Hardy's journey to this moment was not without drama. The polarizing fighter originally won his last clash at UFC on ESPN 6 against Ben Sosoli via unanimous decision, but it was overturned to a no contest because Hardy used an inhaler between rounds.

Who will win Magomedsharipov vs Kattar?
Both Magomedsharipov and Kattar are up-and-coming featherweight fighters with plenty to prove, so the clash should keep viewers on the edge of their seats.
Magomedsharipov won his last fight against Jeremy Stephens via unanimous decision. He is currently ranked No. 5 in the UFC's featherweight division, while Kattar is No.11. A win this weekend would put him in a great position to be the next challenger for the title. Some would argue that the odds are mostly in his favour.
However, Kattar has plenty going for him as well. He is an energetic mixed martial artist and he won his last two fights against Chris Fishgold and Ricardo Lamas. We wouldn't dare to underestimate him.
