Preview: Neil Magny vs. Shavkat Rakhmonov
The billed “main event” is an interesting matchup between No. 10-ranked Neil Magny and undefeated up-and-comer No. 15 Shakvat Rakhmonov, who only sounds like a ballet dancer. He’s tougher than a Donald Trump-ordered steak.
In an appearance on a podcast by MMA Fighting earlier this week, Magny explained why he doesn’t shy away from taking on young stars in the sport like Rakhmonov, who is favored to beat the more experienced fighter. Magny has extra motivation. If he wins on Saturday night he would set a UFC record for 20 wins as a welterweight.
Preview: Arman Tsarukyan vs. Mateusz Gamrot
The Lightweight class feature event will pit No. 11 Arman Tsarukyan against No. 12 Mateusz Gamrot. Both fighters are thirsty for a chance to propel themselves toward the top of the contender list for a Lightweight title fight.
Originally a wrestler, Tsarukyan has honed his kickboxing skills and added mobility and agility to his repertoire. He enters Saturday’s fight having won six in a row since entering the Lightweight division. Gamrot believes a drawn-out fight is to his advantage.
“I am dangerous as a striker, and in wrestling and jiu-jitsu, but I don’t want to finish the fight too early,” Gamrot told UFC.com. “I want to show a lot of violence for five rounds.”
