UFC welterweights, veteran Neil Magny and invincible prospect Shavkat Rakhmonov are ready to compete in the UFC octagon. Magny is 5-1 in his last 6 bouts while Rakhmonov is 15-0 with a 100% completion rate. While Rakhmonov has yet to be tested at range, Magny seems to be the one who could bring out this aspect of Rakhmonov as well. Magny is known for fighting people like Lorenz Larkin, Michael Chiesa, Rafael Dos Anjos, Santiago Ponizinibbio, Demian Maia and many more.
Magny has secured victories over people like Max Griffin, Geoff Neal, Robbie Lawler, Carlos Condit, Anthony Rocco Martin, Li Jingliang, Johnny Hendricks, Hector Lombard, Kelvin Gastelum, Eric Silva, Tim Means and many more. Rakhmonov, on the other hand, last fought in February 2022 when he secured a spinning hook kick knockout followed by punches over another promising candidate Carlston Harris.

What do you think of this duel between Magny and Rakhmonov? Rakhmonov was desperate for a fight, even urging Li Jingliang to back off from the opportunity to fight him. But then Magny came to play and decided to prove his worth as a fighter not afraid to fight anyone when he asked Rakhmonov for an offer to stay hungry for competition against him.
While Rakhmonov has so far proven to be a finisher in all areas of MMA, be it batting or grappling, Magny is more of an economically savvy fighter who likes to keep the fight going at a certain pace that he’s happy to dictate, even when it’s like that is means to go at a distance. Who do you think will win, will Rakhmonov go undefeated or will Magny be Rakhmonov’s first bitter learning experience in MMA?
