Shavkat Rakhmanov put on a stellar performance against Geoff Neal at UFC 285. Rakhmanov showcased his striking skills and landed more than Neal. He landed 64.5 percent of his strikes, revealing to the fight fans that he is more than a grappler. It was not just his performance that stole the show but gifting his hat to Joe Rogan.


Joe Rogan is part of the commentary team and always interviews the fighter once the decision has been announced. It was an emotional victory for Rakhmanov, who will get a better ranking in the Welterweight Division. He will look to fight a fighter in the top 5 for his next fight.

Shavkat Rakhmanov controlled the fight with his striking and control over Neal in the Octagon. He was even in danger of getting knocked out in the third round after Neal rocked him. But he recovered, landed a barrage of strikes, and eventually got the submission victory.

Somewhere down the line, he might fight Khamzat Chimaev in a potential European showdown. If Rakhmanov keeps winning, he will fight for the UFC Welterweight Championship sooner or later. On the other hand, Joe Rogan has another story to tell on his podcast.
