UFC Fight Night on ESPN+: Zabit vs. Kattar in Moscow streams exclusively on ESPN+ this Saturday, Nov.  9, at 11 a.m. ET from CSKA Arena in Russia. The main event features a highly-anticipated featherweight matchup between Russian fighter Zabit Magomedsharipov (17-1-0) and American Calvin Kattar (20-3-0). UFC Live returns to ESPN2 on Friday, providing fans with exclusive takes on the biggest news, stars and stories tailored to UFC Fight Night Moscow. In addition, every single fight on the card will be available for individual fight-by-fight replay on ESPN+ immediately following the fights.

First billed as the hometown hero in a matchup originally scheduled for October 18 in Boston, Massachusetts’ Calvin Kattar will instead take on Russia’s Magomedsharipov in Moscow after their fight was rescheduled. Kattar will be looking to snap Magomedsharipov’s 13-fight win streak and give him his first loss in his UFC career. Kattar is coming off back-to-back first round knockouts and has won 12 of his last 13 fights.

The co-main event will pit rising heavyweight prospect Greg Hardy against the experienced Alexander Volkov. With all five of his professional MMA wins coming via first-round knockout, Hardy will take on his highest-ranked opponent to date in the fastest turnaround of his career after replacing former UFC heavyweight champion, Junior Dos Santos in this matchup. Volkov will look to rebound from a knockout loss against Derrick Lewis in October 2018, which snapped his six-fight win streak.
