Geoff-Neal-vs-Shavkat-RakhmonovBookmaker Ratings: Prediction #1 –

Fight Result – TotaL Rounds Under 2.5

I hope Geoff Neal does not suffer the same fate as Neil Magny. Everywhere you look there is a significant advantage for Shavkat in all aspects. In the rack, he is uncomfortable for the American as it will be difficult to hit him, let alone pin him near the net.

Rakhmonov will again combine wrestling with a jab and will not let his opponent relax for a minute. Most likely, the Kyrgyz native’s seventeenth finish is not far off. Only a lucky punch can help Neil defeat such a versatile and colourful opponent.

Preliminary review and match prediction for Geoff Neal vs Shavkat Rakhmonov

Geoff Neal: Handz of Steel

American welterweight Geoff Neal is currently ranked number seven at 170 pounds. The fighter had a successful last two fights in which he defeated Argentinian Santiago ‘’Argentine Dagger’’ Ponzinibbio and Brazilian Vicente ‘’The Silent Assassin’’  Luque by 3rd round knockout. These successful performances allowed him to cap off his setbacks in his clashes with American Neil ‘’The Haitian Sensation’’ Magny and Stephen Thompson, as well as breaking back into the title race.

The 32-year-old fighter has 15 wins and four defeats to his credit. Most of his success comes by KO/TKO, as he prefers to fight in the standup.

Not without reason, Neal has the nickname ‘’Handz of Steel’’ as he takes really heavy punches with both hands. The fighter also has good footwork, as well as a high percentage of protection against take-downs.

Shavkat Rakhmonov: Nomad

‘’Nomad’’ will make his seventeenth appearance in the cage, and his record is 16 victories without any losses and draws. He is on a four-fight winning streak in the UFC and has already managed to break into the top 10 of the welterweight division. Shavkat has finished every one of his opponents and has done so in a variety of ways.

In the best league of the world, Rakhmonov managed to take on Alex Oliveira, Michel Prazeres, Carlston Harris and Neil Magny. The fighter is now 28 years old, so the biggest victories of his career are definitely ahead of him.

The Kazakhstan fighter is a versatile fighter. He is an excellent standup fighter, technically outboxing his opponents using his impressive anthropomorphic stats. Shavkat is very good at grappling as well, adroitly coming into dominant positions and executing choking holds.
