After the highly anticipated fight between Zabit Magomedsharipov and Yair Rodriguez was cancelled earlier this week, per Dana White, Calvin Kattar has thrown his name in the mix for a potential rematch against the rising featherweight contender via a Tweet, earlier this morning.

“I gave you 10 months to catch your breath after that third round. You ready to pick up where we left off on 8/29? #FiveRounds #NewEnglandCartel,” said Kattar.

Zabit didn’t take long to respond, minutes later he tweeted, “You are a great fighter and great person. But my goal is the UFC belt, not the rematches of unanimous decisions. I’ll give you that 5 round (rematch) as my first title defense. PS: don’t forget about the first 2 rounds, next time it will last all 5,” said Magomedsharipov.

It is true that Zabit has his eyes set on gold following the pull out of Yair Rodriguez. After news broke about the fight being off, Magomedsharipov wasted no time calling out the divisions champion, Alexander Volkanovski, through a series of Twitter and Instagram posts.

Hey @ufc stop playing games with me! Give me a title shot! How long should I wait until you do what you promised? Before UFC 249 in April, I waited first for Rodriguez, then Ortega, then Zombie. Within a month, you changed 3-4 opponents for me, as a result, you did not organize any of the fights and told me to wait for Max and Volkanovski's rematch, so I could fight for the title with the winner of their fight later. The rematch is long gone, let's see how you keep your word! I deserve to fight for the title and I can take that belt. ⠀ Эй @ufc хватит со мной в игры играть! Дайте мне титульный бой! Сколько можно ждать, пока вы сделаете то, что обещали? Перед апрельским турниром UFC 249 я ждал сначала Родригеза, потом Ортегу, потом Зомби. В течение месяца вы мне поменяли 3-4 соперников, в итоге ни один из боев не организовали и сказали ждать реванша Макса и Волкановски, чтобы с победителем их боя драться за титул потом. Чтобы не простаивать, я согласился на бой 29 августа, но вы опять стали придумывать игры. Реванш давно прошёл, посмотрим, как вы сдержите слово! Я заслужил подраться за титул и смогу забрать этот пояс.
