Undefeated Russian fighter Khabib Nurmagomedov has verbally agreed to make his UFC debut against powerful wrestler Kamal ‘Prince of Persia’ Shalorus January 20 in Nashville,” said UFC President Dana White.
Shalorus has not fought since March 19 at UFC 128, where he suffered the first loss of his career at the hands (and knees) of Jim Miller. The former WEC contender will look to regain steam in the lightweigh division.
Nurmagomedov is an amazing 16-0 with only 4 of those wins going to the judges scorecards. The undefeated lightweight has just recently signed a six-fight deal with the UFC and will look to make a run at the lightweight title.
