MMA: UFC Fight Night-Santiago vs Magomedsharipov Per Haljestam-USA TODAY Sports

Two exciting featherweight are set to collide in China.

Coming off a thrilling Octagon debut in September, Zabit Magomedsharipov is now scheduled to meet Octagon newcomer Sheymon Moraes at the UFC Shanghai card on Nov. 25, the promotion announced Thursday.

Magomedsharipov (13-1), a former ACB 145-pound champion, dominated and finished Mike Santiago in his UFC debut, earning a “Performance of the Night” bonus for his second-round submission victory.

Moraes (9-1) has knocked out his opponent in the majority of his MMA wins, and has won two in a row, against Robbie Peralta and Luis Palomino, since moving up from the bantamweight division.

UFC fight Night 122 will be headlined by former middleweight champion Anderson Silva against Kelvin Gastelum at the Mercedes-Benz Arena.
