Abubakar Nurmagomedov has agreed to a fight contract with the World Series of Fighting. The 24-year-old is the brother of unbeaten UFC lightweight contender Khabib Nurmagomedov.
Abubakar sports a 9-1 record that includes a recent first round victory in Russia. He has six career knockouts and has been competing as a pro since 2011.
His brother, Khabib, will return from a knee injury later this year to face Donald Cerrone.
News of the signing was first reported by MMAFighting.com.
