Khasan Magomedsharipov, Zabit’s brother, meets Jose Sanchez at Bellator Dublin

Khasan Magomedsharipov, younger brother of UFC featherweight Zabit Magomedsharipov, will compete on the stacked Bellator Dublin card.

Magomedsharipov (6-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC) takes on Jose Sanchez (11-1 MMA, 0-0 BMMA) at Bellator Dublin, which takes place Feb. 25 at the 3Arena. A Bellator announced the matchup Wednesday after an initial report from Igor Lazorin.

Unbeaten in his pro MMA career, 21-year-old Magomedsharipov made good in his Bellator debut when he scored a second-round TKO of Jonathan Quiroz at Bellator 263 in July. Five of his six wins have come by way of finish.

Having competed in various organizations throughout Spain, Sanchez will make his Bellator debut against the highly touted Magomedsharipov. After an unbeaten start to his pro MMA career, the Spanish fighter endured his first-career loss when he was submitted by Felipe Maia at EPF 1.

The Bellator Dublin lineup currently includes:

  • Gegard Mousasi vs. Austin Vanderford – for middleweight title
  • Kane Mousah vs. Peter Queally
  • Sinead Kavanagh vs. Leah McCourt
