Things are getting testy between UFC’s Yair Rodriguez and Zabit Magomedsharipov …
The two were SUPPOSED to do battle at UFC Fight Night on August 29 — but that’s been pushed after Yair suffered an ankle injury.
Zabit — the #3 ranked featherweight contender — ripped Yair about the situation on social media saying, “Yair has no balls.”
Zabit then called for a replacement fight with the champ, Alex Volkanovski … a fight Alex seems to be interested in taking.
The whole situation didn’t go over well with Yair — the #5 ranked featherweight contender — who clapped back at Zabit Thursday morning.
“Sit down and wait for me the way you have been waiting,” Yair said.
“You will get a real good taste of my big mexican balls soon enough.”
Yair added, “And since when did you become the sh*t talker? That you or your manager? Either way you’ll both wait for me like the little dogs you are. Tongue out and begging. I’ll see you in October-November 5 rounds.”
Both Yair and Zabit have been incredibly impressive lately.
Yair is on a 2-fight win streak with victories over Jeremy Stephens and the Korean Zombie.
Zabit is 18-1 as a pro with recent wins over Stephens and Calvin Kattar.
