The Canadian dealt with the Russian
Canadian Hakim Davodu defeated Russian Zubaira Tukhugov by split decision at UFC 253, which takes place in Abu Dhabi. Tukhugov did not fit into the featherweight category, so he will have to give part of the fee to his opponent.
For the 29-year-old Russian, this is the fifth defeat in MMA with 19 victories. Canadian Davodu has 12 wins, a draw and a loss.
