Zabit Magomedsharipov || Breakdown • Skill Study • Highlights •
Zabit Magomedsharipov, whom I won’t be doing a voice-over for (I’ll refer to as Zabit, ZaBeast, ZMPunk or simply ZM) has been touted as “Khabib with Striking” in the whispering corners of MMA circles for the past year or so.
The 27 year old from Dagestan started to train in freestyle wrestling at 10 years and shortly thereafter into kickboxing. Now he is considered versed in Wushu Sanda, Sambo, Boxing, Taekwondo, and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
His creativity, and incredible frame/size for someone competing at 145 lbs (6’1″ (1.85 m) 73″ (185 cm) reach) make for an exciting young and enigmatic prospect as his coaches and training partners have touted him as something truly unique and incredible. Zabit works with many high-level coaches and fighters via Ricardo Almeida and Mark Henry.
After watching him in a very entertaining fight with Kyle Bochniak, albeit with a broken hand, I did the proverbial licking of the chops and made the easy decision on whom I wanted to dissect next. Let’s do this….
