Khasan Magomedsharipov, younger brother of UFC featherweight Zabit Magomedsharipov, will compete on the stacked Bellator Dublin card.
Magomedsharipov (6-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC) takes on Jose Sanchez (11-1 MMA, 0-0 BMMA) at Bellator Dublin, which takes place on February 25 at 3Arena. A Bellator announced the game on Wednesday after an initial report from Igor Lazorin.
Unbeaten in his pro MMA career, 21-year-old Magomedsharipov made his Bellator debut when he scored a second-round TKO from Jonathan Quiroz at Bellator 263 in July. Five of his six victories have come to an end.
After competing in various organizations across Spain, Sanchez will make his Bellator debut against the much-vaunted Magomedsharipov. After an undefeated start to his MMA career, the Spanish fighter suffered his first career loss when he was submitted by Felipe Maia to EPF 1.
