It is known that Zarruh will fight against host Taysan Nem on his debut on June 13 (Sunday morning Tashkent time) in Las Vegas. Below, he expressed his reaction to these events, as well as his pre-fight views.
" First of all, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to all our Uzbek fans for their warm thoughts and congratulations on signing a contract with UFC. Of course, opponents in this way will not be simple. Nevertheless, I will try to please our fans and defend the honor of Uzbekistan with dignity. Now I have to lose 10 kg. The reason is that everything was too faster. I hope everything will be fine and my debut will be successful in return for your support and prayers in absentia!" He said to Sports.uz
