By Tristen Critchfield Aug 6, 2019


A pivotal featherweight clash has been booked for the UFC Boston co-headliner, as Zabit Magomedsharipov will square off against Calvin Kattar on Oct. 18.

UFC president Dana White confirmed the bout to ESPN.com on Tuesday. UFC Boston takes place at TD Garden and is headlined by a light heavyweight clash pitting Dominick Reyes against Chris Weidman. The card is expected to air on ESPN.

Magomedsharipov has won 17 of his first 18 professional outings, a run that includes all five of his Octagon appearances. Most recently, the 28-year-old Dagestani outpointed Jeremy Stephens at UFC 235 on March 2.

Kattar, meanwhile, has been victorious in four of his five UFC bouts. “The Boston Finisher” is coming off back-to-back first-round TKO victories over Chris Fishgold and Ricardo Lamas in his last two outings.
