Neil Magny vs. Shavkat Rakmonov set for June 25th Fight Night

An exciting welterweight matchup has just been announced for UFC’s June 25th Fight Night

The event will now feature rising welterweight star Shavkat Rakmonov vs. top ten welterweight Neil Magny. 

With just three UFC bouts under his belt, Rakmonov will look to break into the top ten of the division. Since making his way to the UFC, the former M-1 welterweight champion has defeated Alex Oliveira and Michel Prazeres. Most recently, he defeated Carlston Harris with a spinning hook kick that led to his third win under the UFC banner. 

As a professional, he is undefeated with a record of 15-0-0. “Nomad” will be faced with tough opposition as he takes on the 34-fight veteran Magny. 

Magny (26-8-0) has been in the top 15 of the UFC for quite some time. During his UFC career, he has collected victories over the likes of Kelvin Gastelum, Carlos Condit, Robbie Lawler, and Geoff Neal.

He most recently made the walk to the octagon just last month, where he defeated Max Griffin via split decision at UFC Fight Night: Blaydes vs. Daukaus
