On June 25, as part of the 12th round of the Belarusian Major League, the Neman and BATE teams will meet at the Neman Arena (Grodno).
The small diaspora of Kazakh fighters in the UFC is gradually expanding, and since 2020, the league's welterweight division has been replenished with another name that does not know defeat - Shavkat Rakhmonov. This guy has finished every fight and it looks like he doesn't know what the word "settle down" means.
Now, “Nomad” has the opportunity to get into the TOP-10 of the division, but first he will have to overcome the skilled veteran - Neil Magny, who has more than 30 professional performances behind him. Their bout will be the co-main event of UFC on ESPN 38 (Vegas 57) on June 26. At the moment, this is the most important fight in Rakhmonov's career and victory in it will be decisive for his further path to the UFC.
