Shara Magomedov gets new opponent for Saturday’s UFC on ABC 6


Crisis adverted. Shara Magomedov is staying on UFC on ABC 6.

The fan-favorite fighter lost his bout against Joilton Lutterbach at Saturday’s UFC debut event in Saudi Arabia, but has quickly found a replacement in Antonio Trocoli on just three days’ notice.

UFC CEO Dana White announced the news on his Instagram on Wednesday evening.

His opponent, Trocoli (12-3, 0-0 UFC), will finally make his UFC debut after a tumultuous history with the company. He earned a UFC contract through Contender Series in 2019, but was cut after a failed anti-doping test.

Trocoli then returned to the regional circuit, where he won a fight and was re-signed to the promotion in 2022. Since, he’s had three canceled bouts and has yet to set foot in the octagon. He was supposed to fight Ikram Aliskerov last Saturday, but Aliskerov was pulled to fight Robert Whittaker in the main event of UFC on ABC 6.
