RotoWire Fantasy Analysis
Moraes was defeated by Zabit Magomedsharipov via submission (anaconda choke) at 4:30 of Round 3 at UFC Fight Night: Shanghai on Saturday.
Moraes was dominated from the opening bell. He could not stop Magomedsharipov from taking the fight to the ground. Once the fight was on the ground, the decorated kickboxer had no answer for the advanced grappling of the Russian. Even when he got back to his feet, Magomedsharipov would keep a body lock and throw Moraes to the ground, much like fellow countryman Khabib Nurmagomedov. The Brazilian featherweight absorbed a lot of punishment on the ground, and ultimately succumbed to a submission late in the third round.
