Magomedsharipov was signed by the UFC in 2017. De Dagestani set a record 12-1 at the time and was the featherweight champion of the prestigious ACB. Magomedsharipov made his UFC debut in Rotterdam against also newcomer Mike Santiago.

The Russian outmaneuvered the American and won by naked rear throttle in the second round. Magomedsharipov closed out 2017 with Anaconda Choke’s victory over Brazilian Sheymon Moraes. In both matches he received the Performance of the Night award.
United States for the first time
Then the Dagestan made his US debut in the UFC. In a very attractive match, Kyle Bochniak won by unanimous decision. At that time, the first votes were that Magomedsharipov had heart disease only for two rounds.

Five months later, Magomedsharipov won again. He was almost responsible for introducing the first Banana Split to the UFC. However, this did not work out and he was able to finish Brandon Davis with Suloev Stretch. This was the moment for the UFC to give Magomedsharipov a step into the competition.
The highest featherweight fighter
That move was in March of 2019, Jeremy Stevens. Once again, Magomedsharipov suffered heart problems in the third round, but did enough to win. The UFC then scheduled Magomedsharipov against Calvin Kattar in October of that year. But Magomedsharipov contracted a severe staphylococcal infection and withdrew from the match. De Daghestani informed the UFC that he could fight in Moscow a month later. As a result, the party was scheduled for a month later. The UFC wanted to make it the main event, but Magomedsharipov’s team blocked it.
Magomedsharipov was in poor health and was unable to fight for five rounds due to the effects of the infection. This was also shown during the match. Magomedsharipov was better in the first two rounds, but became less severe as the match progressed. A train won the third lap and would have had the momentum too if it had been five laps. This was not the case and Magomedsharipov won.
Since then, the health of the Dagestani has been deteriorating. Magomedsharipov fell ill several times and something was wrong with his immune system. The Dagestani even underwent an operation that put his life at risk. The UFC has removed Magomedsharipov from the idle ratings. In September last year, coach Mark Henry announced that Zapat would fight again. However, Magomedsharipov did not return to work. The Dagestani is now feeling better, but not good enough to come back. Say it in the comment below.
Statement by Zapet Magomedsharipov
“Friends. I know many of you have been waiting for me to come back. Not a day goes by that I haven’t been asked when to fight again. Today I decided to end my active career. I can’t fight anymore. I have recovered but I don’t feel as healthy as I used to be, thanks Thank you for all the support over the years, unfortunately I didn’t have time to become a UFC champ but I hope I have enjoyed my games. I won’t quit the sport. I still have enough knowledge to pass it on. So don’t say goodbye!!”
