Neil Magny vs. Shavkat Rakhmonov is a fight that everyone will be keeping their eye on. Lightning Locks is here with his prediction for this battle.

Neil Magny vs. Shavkat Rakhmonov Prediction: Will this Fight Go the Distance?

This Saturday sees perhaps one of the biggest prospects in all of MMA return with Shavkat Rakhmonov going for broke against the always game Neil Magny. Not since Khamzat Chimaev have we seen such a brazen, prolific young finisher, and I am OK with that. We can't have all these fossil fuel gentlemen from the industrial era clogging up the joint. I rather see the new and improved zoomer generation take a stab at the title and perhaps make some runs for a change.

Neil Magny vs. Shavkat Rakhmonov Prediction

If there was ever an opportunity to advance in the combat world, however, Neil Magny is unceremoniously your guy. The gatekeeper of all gatekeepers, Neil is no doubt being used as a stepping stone for bigger and better up and comers. Shavkat is no different to the breed that Magny is being fed to religiously,  with his 7 kos and 7 submissions proving that he is no stranger to finishing the fight early and often.

Although Magny is notoriously a durable lad, I don't see him lasting the full 15 If Rakhmonov is on his usual stellar game. I know I might appear to be preaching to the choir here, but I generally believe Rakhamonov is the future of the division and this should be a passable test that he should easily devour with flying colors and the like. 

Look for Shavkat Rakhamonov to kill Neil Magny or die trying, peppering his body and making him lower his guard, only for him to be met with a swift head kick and a loss of consciousness early in the second round. By playing the fight doesn't go the distance you can also account for a savvy veteran comeback in Magny, but either way you're going home a richer individual.
