Zabit’s stock to rise again? Get our UFC on ESPN+ 21 tips

The UFC is back in Moscow, Russia for its latest Fight Night card and we have picked out our favourite bets from the night’s action at the CSKA Arena that you can back individually or group together to form an 5/1 treble.

Zabit Magomedsharipov to beat Calvin Kattar by decision


Zabit Magomedsharipov and Calvin Kattar were thrust into the main event slot when former heavyweight champion Junior Dos Santos was forced off the card due to an infection, and that means all eyes will be on two of the hottest prospects in the featherweight division as they look to add to their burgeoning reputations. Magomedsharipov scored the biggest win of his career last time out as he bested experienced veteran Jeremy Stephens over three rounds to extend his win streak to 13 fights, while Kattar goes into the fight having bounced back from the decision defeat to Renato Moicano with back-to-back TKO successes over Chris Fishgold and Ricardo Lamas. Kattar has clearly had a tougher schedule than Magomedsharipov since arriving in the UFC, but the Russian has a more rounded skill-set than any of those fighters and he has been presented a blueprint for victory in the form of Kattar’s loss to Moicano. If he follows Moicano’s lead then Magomedsharipov should get the job done on the judges’ scorecards, delighting his home crowd in the process.

Alexander Volkov to beat Greg Hardy by KO/TKO


Alexander Volkov had been slated to face former heavyweight champion Junior Dos Santos until the Brazilian was forced off the card, and in Greg Hardy it is fair to say that the standard of his opponent in Moscow has dropped considerably. Former NFL star Hardy remains an unpopular figure with fight fans due to his past history of domestic violence, but I guess you have to give him credit for agreeing to step up and take such a tough fight on short notice. However, he has clearly bitten off more than he can chew. Hardy has shown nothing so far to suggest that he can deal with a fighter of Volkov’s quality. The ex-Dallas Cowboy will come out all guns blazing in an attempt to land an early fight-ending blow, but that crude approach will not bring much joy and as Hardy quickly runs out of steam Volkov will put a hurt on him before stopping him with strikes.


Zelim Imadaev to beat Danny Roberts


British welterweight Danny Roberts could be fighting for his UFC career as he looks to bounce back from back-to-back stoppage losses. ‘Hot Chocolate’ faces a tough time of it though in facing Zelim Imadaev. Imadaev arrived in the UFC with a great deal of hype only to drop his debut outing, but he is not the first fighter to underwhelm in his first trip to the Octagon and he will not be the last. The question is can he bounce back quickly? He has been given what could be a favourable assignment to do just that – Roberts has been stopped with strikes in three of his last seven fights and Imadaev has the striking power to make it four KO/TKO defeats in eight outings for the Englishman.
