Zabit Magomedsharipov Reveals UFC’s Offer of Title Shot to End Retirement

Zabit Magomedsharipov, one of the most promising fighters in mixed martial arts (MMA), recently disclosed that the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) had extended an offer for a title shot in an attempt to lure him out of retirement. With an impressive professional record of 18-1 and a flawless 6-0 record in the UFC, Zabit’s potential for a world title has always been a topic of discussion among fans and experts alike.

However, Zabit has been absent from the Octagon since November 2019 after defeating Calvin Kattar. His retirement last summer was attributed to a series of health issues that he has been facing. Despite hopes of a comeback, the 32-year-old fighter has remained firm in his decision to stay retired.

During a recent interview, Zabit revealed that the UFC had offered him a championship fight to entice him back into the sport. However, he declined the opportunity, stating, ‘They immediately offered a battle for the belt, but I still said no.’

The idea of Zabit Magomedsharipov facing off against Alexander Volkanovski, the current featherweight champion, is undoubtedly intriguing for fans. However, it has been a considerable amount of time since Zabit’s last fight, leading to speculation about his motivations for not returning. Some believe that his health concerns or a lack of trust in the UFC may be the reasons behind his decision.

The featherweight division in the UFC boasts a roster of formidable fighters, making it an exciting weight class to watch. Despite the challenges, fans are hopeful that Zabit will make a comeback and showcase his skills once again.
