Report: UFC releases flyweight Bibulatov as division continues to dwindle

When Magomed Bibulatov entered the UFC, he was hailed as one of the best flyweight prospects in the world. The Chechen fighter sported a spotless 13-0 record, having picked up championship belts in World Series of Fighting, Absolute Championship Berkut (ACB), and World Fighting Championship Akhmat (WFCA). Three years later and it’s safe to say his career in the Octagon hasn’t quite panned out the way many expected.

MMA DNA’s Marcel Dorff reports that Bibulatov has re-signed with Kadyrov’s MMA organization under the newly minted Absolute Championship Akhmat banner (formed with the combining of WFCA & ACB in late 2018).
