Video: Zabit Stares Down Jeremy Stephens During Intense Faceoff

A pivotal featherweight bout will go down in the featured preliminary card bout of this weekend’s (Sat., March 2, 2019) UFC 235 from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. There, rising star Zabit Magomedsharipov will face longtime veteran Jeremy Stephens. It’s time Zabit stares down the biggest opponent of his UFC tenure.

The two just met face to face during today’s UFC 235 media day. Needless to say, it was an intense staredown where the lanky Zabit towered over the more stocky Stephens. But as his fighting style confirms, ‘Lil Heathen’ wasn’t backing down one bit.

A chilling faceoff was the result. Watch it courtesy of ESPN’s Brett Okamoto right here:
