Shavkat Rakhmonov Vs Carlston Harris
The UFC Vegas saw Shavkat Rakhmonov demolish Carlston Harris with a spinning heel kick. After devastating the Brazilian MMA fighter, the welterweight prospect continued his impressive record and remained undefeated.
The undefeated fighter looked for the kill from the initial moments, which produced the best highlight of the match – reel-spinning heel kick. Rakhmonov continued his dominance by hammering several punches on his opponent, leaving Harris liming in the octagon.
Despite Harris’s initial aggression, Rakhmonov outsmarted his opponent with his tactics. Although Harris showed defensive takedown abilities, Rakhmonov’s agility and technically sound strikes continued to trouble the Brazilian from the outside.
Rakhmonov continued his aggression and launched his spinning heel to send Harris down in the first round’s final minute. He jumped on top and started throwing several punches on his opponent’s face. Eventually, one of his shots found Harris’s chin, leaving the Brazilian unconscious.
The referee prevented Rakhmonov from punishing Harris further, which ended the match. Rakhmonov celebrated his victory by knocking out Carlston Harris in four minutes and ten seconds. He accomplished his third consecutive UFC win with a career record of 15-0.
The win has put Rakhmonov in the spotlight, and the jaw-dropping Saturday night finish is on a different level. Although many consider Khamzat Chimaev one of the best welterweight prospects, Rakhmonov might steal that position with his outstanding record.
