Askar Askarov will likely be returning to action in the coming weeks, as Absolute Championship Akhmat has announced the promotion’s signed the former UFC contender.

Askarov established himself as a force in the UFC’s flyweight division by going 3-0-1 in his first four bouts, before losing by decision to Kai Kara France this past October.

Following that bout, the 30-year-old fighter announced he had requested his release from the UFC, due to health issues.

The ACA announcement did not include any information regarding Askarov’s (14-1-1) contract or when he’s expected to make his debut.
