Shavkat Rakhmonov passed his toughest test yet with flying colors after securing a submission victory over Neil Magny at UFC Vegas 57 tonight.

Rakhmonov asserted his dominance from round one, where a Magny slip saw the Kazakh gain top control and land some heavy ground and pound. Then after getting an early takedown in round two, Rakhmonov once again controlled Magny from on top, before sinking in a guillotine choke that forced Magny to tap with just seconds left in the round.

Rakhmonov has now finished all sixteen of his career opponents. The 27-year-old has earned four victories since making his UFC debut in October 2020, including wins against Alex Oliveira, Michael Prazeres, and Carlston Harris.

You can catch the highlights of the co-main event below.

With how one-sided that performance was tonight, I’d rather see Shavkat Rakhmonov fight a Top 5 welterweight #UFCVegas57

— James Lynch (@LynchOnSports) June 26, 2022

Shavkat Rakhmonov is an elite welterweight. Good lord. That’s a monster right there.

He absolutely ran through him

— CarlaTwoTimes, P4P #1 (@P4Stan) June 26, 2022

Shavkat Rakhmonov is a problem in the Welterweight Division. He’s amazing everywhere. I honestly don’t see anyone beating him besides Usman or Chimaev. Maybe Burns if he’s on the ground and can pull off a subs but highly doubt it. #UFCVegas57
