Bengaluru, November 7: The Ultimate Fighting Championship visit Russia this weekend as they look to follow up on an controversial end to last week's UFC 244 with a Fight Night in Moscow.

UFC Fight Night 163: Magomedsharipov vs. Kattar is set to be headlined by a rescheduled featherweight bout between Zabit Magomedsharipov and Calvin Kattar.

The pair were originally slated to meet in UFC on ESPN 6 last month, but the promotion officials moved the bout to Moscow. And initially scheduled as the co-main event of the Moscow event, the pair were moved into the main event slot after original main eventer Junior dos Santos pulled out.

Dos Santos' opponent, former Bellator heavyweight champion Alexander Volkov, however, still remains on the card and will face late replacement Greg Hardy in the heavyweight co-main event.

Also on the main card, feature Zelim Imadev versus Danny Roberts at welterweight, Khadis Ibragimov versus Ed Herman at light heavyweight, Ramazan Emeev versus Anthony Rocco Martin at welterweight and finally Shamil Gamzatov versus Klidson Abreu at light heavyweight.

In the preliminary card, we will see a lot of hometown's fighters and the likes of Magomed Ankalaev, Rustam Khabilov, Karl Roberson, Abubakar Nurmagomedov, Roosevelt Roberts, Pannie Kianzad, Jessica-Rose Clark, Davey Grant among many others in action.
