Zabit Magomedsharipov Welcomes Timur Valiev to UFC With Hilarious Post
Bantamweight Timur Valiev has reportedly been added to the UFC's roster, and his buddy Zabit Magomedsharipov welcomed him with an homage to 'Home Alone'.
Zabit Magomedsharipov may be a terrifying monster in the Octagon, but the featherweight contender clearly has quite a sense of humor.
Magomedsharipov turns to ‘Home Alone’ to welcome Timur Valiev to the UFC
Recently it was reported by MMA Junkie that the UFC has signed Timur Valiev and that he’ll face Jamall Emmers in a featherweight fight on August 1st. If your MMA diet is solely UFC based, you may not know that Valiev (16-) was regarded as one of the best bantamweights and featherweights in the sport, who wasn’t signed to the UFC.
Well, Magomedsharipov trains with the 30-year-old, Dagestani fighter and the two are evidently pals. Recently Zabit shared out the post below to welcome Timur to the promotion, while paying homage to ‘Home Alone’.
Valiev hasn’t fought since last July, when he defeated Bekbulat Magomedov by decision at a PFL card.
Magomedsharipov’s next fight
While it looks like Valiev’s next bout is lined up, it’s not clear what’s next for Magomedsharipov (18-1). The Dagestani contender is coming off a decision win over Calvin Kattar in November.
