Shavkat Rakhmonov is coming off the biggest win of his career and he keeps his status as an undefeated fighter intact as he finishes Neil Magny in a fight that was thought to be going to be the first decision victory for Rakhmonov in the co-main of UFC Vegas 57. Rakhmonov also has the record for 100 per cent finish rate. Rakhmonov is now looking for a fight against top welterweight contenders that will get him closer to top 5 status and eventually closer to a title shot.
Rakhmonov has called out former 2-time UFC title challenger Stephen Thompson and this fight can be a complete barn burner if it is decided to be kept on feet. Rakhmonov is a definite problem and might be the next name after Khamzat Chimaev to pose a problem that no one wants to face at the welterweight division. The future of this Kazakh fighter seems brighter than ever today while he proved so by making the easy work of the toughest test of his career.
