Watch: Shavkat Rakhmonov Forces Magny To Submit at UFC Vegas 57
Shavkat Rakhmonov has maintained his 100% finish rate with the 16th finish in a row by submitting Niel Magny at UFC Vegas 57.
It only took just short of two rounds for Rakhmonov to force Magny to submit via guillotine choke.
Rakhmonov and Magny clashed in the co-main event of UFC Vegas 57 in Rakhmonov’s fourth UFC appearance. He was able to dominate the bout from start to finish. He caught an early kick from Magny and put him down on the mat to hit his punches. Despite Magny’s attempts, Rakhmonov continued to keep his dominant position while keeping up with his punches.
The same story repeated in the second round as Rakhmonov gave Magny no easy picking and took him down early in the round. Rakhmonov then moved for a guillotine choke and quickly grabbed the neck to lock up the submission. Magny tapped out with just two seconds left in the second round.
In the post-match interview, Rakhmonov pointed out that he did not rush for submission as he knew Magny was a good fighter. He also claimed that he will be a UFC champion in a year or two, and also called out Stephen Thomson as a good next fight.
