The UFC Moscow bonuses and attendance have been released.
UFC Moscow took place inside the CSKA Arena in Moscow, Russia. Headlining the card was a featherweight clash between Zabit Magomedsharipov and Calvin Kattar. After three rounds of action, Magomedsharipov was awarded the unanimous decision victory.
The co-main event saw heavyweight action. Alexander Volkov went one-on-one with Greg Hardy. Hardy stepped up on short notice to replace Junior dos Santos, who was pulled from the card due to a bacterial infection. Volkov scored the unanimous decision win over Hardy.
