“Ninja kicks got me emotional” – Zabit Magomedsharipov’s younger brother in full flow at Bellator gets fans nostalgic of UFC’s biggest ‘whaf if’

The Magomedsharipov family continues to make waves in the world of mixed martial arts. While Zabit Magomedsharipov may have stepped away, his younger brother is just getting started. Khasan Magomedsharipov, the rising star in Bellator’s featherweight division, made quite an impact that caught mainstream attention. 

At just 23, he’s already making veterans scratch their heads and fans jump out of their seats. Recently, Khasan showcased his skills in a dominant performance against Tyler Mathison. Like his brother, the elite striker showcased flashy striking and fluid moves. This was reminiscent of the Zabit Magomedsharipov-type striking in the UFC.

Khasan’s game plan was clear from the opening bell: pressure, pressure, and more pressure. He came out swinging, and Mathison found himself playing defense. The mix of Khasan Magomedsharipov’s striking was precise, and his grappling was relentless. Mathison couldn’t shake him off for the entire fight. The fight went the distance, and Khasan won every round on all three judges’ scorecards.

It’s safe to say Khasan isn’t just riding his brother’s coattails. He’s blazing his trail, leaving scorch marks on the canvas. Nevertheless, his brother Zabit Magomedsharipov’s impact in his short career in the UFC remains undeniable. Even former bantamweight champion Aljamain Sterling was shocked at the elite skill he possessed. Zabit will forever remain one of the biggest ‘What If’ in the UFC.
