The UFC recently added Sharaputdin Magomedov to its roster and MMA fans are already looking forward to seeing the undefeated Dagestani knockout artist in the octagon. The promotion has reportedly signed him to a multi-fight deal.

Check out the post below (courtesy @combatalk):

The 28-year-old hails from the northern region of the Greater Caucasus region and was born in Makhachkala, the capital of Dagestan. Going by the nickname 'Shara Bullet', the striker primarily competes in the middleweight division.

Magomedov has 13 knockout victories in his professional career spanning 17 fights. His last fight against Kushal Vyas at Thailand Fighting Championship (TFC) 10 saw him emerge victorious after knocking out his opponent in just eight seconds.

With his striking prowess, it should come as no surprise that 'Shara Bullet' showcases a fun highlight reel.

Interestingly, Magomedov hasn't yet submitted any of his opponents. Dagestan is known for producing some of the world's best wrestlers, sambo combatants and submission grapplers.

The newest addition to the UFC also recently became a member of Ali Abdelaziz's Dominance MMA management agency. Sharaputdin Magomedov joins an elite group of UFC stars like Justin Gaethje, Kamaru Usman, Islam Makhachev, and Henry Cejudo, among others.


When newly signed UFC middleweight Sharaputdin Magomedov got into a public scuffle

The UFC recently signed Sharaputdin Magomedov to a multi-fight deal. The 28-year-old is one of the most exciting prospects coming out of Dagestan and has remained undefeated in 17 fights over his career.

However, it seems the striking savant is not only dangerous inside the cage but also outside of it. Earlier this year in June, Magomedov was involved in an altercation with another man at a mall in Dagestan. 'Shara Bullet' initiated the scuffle after confronting the man about his public display of affection with his partner on an escalator in the mall.

The show of affection did not go down well with Magomedov, who confronted the man as they reached the bottom of the escalator. The man then appeared to lash out at Magomedov. A brawl ensued and multiple bystanders rushed in to try and separate the two. Afterwards, 'Shara Bullet' was seen knocking the man out and stomping on his head.

Watch the video below:

It was reported that the 28-year-old was charged with hooliganism and disturbing public order for his actions that day.
