The co-main event of the UFC 286 show will see American lightweight Justin Gaethje and Azerbaijani Rafael Fiziev face off. You could say that this bout was a gift for fans who had lost faith in him after Highlight refused to face Mexican Rafa Garcia last October. The reasons for the pair’s cage match are unknown, but the match is considered a ranked one, and if he wins, ‘’The Ataman’’, ranked number 6, instantly enters the top 5 with title contention. The fight is planned for 23:00 UK time.

Fight Result – Rafael Fiziev to win

While many are impressed with ”Highlight’s” fighting spirit, determination and grit, he doesn’t look like an outright favourite on this stern down. It’s highly likely that the ONX Sports coaching staff will try to tweak Justin’s game plan to suit the versatile Azerbaijani, but the range of those options isn’t that wide.

Preliminary review and match prediction for Justin Gaethje vs Rafael Fiziev

Justin Gaethje: The Highlight

Justin Gaethje has already tried to become the champion twice. The first attempt came in the fall of 2020 against Khabib, and the second one in March 2022 against Oliveira. Up to that point, ‘’ The Highlight’’ has dealt with the division’s most challenging shirts, but in his main matches, he’s fallen to wrestlers.

Despite this, Gaethje is among the most sought-after fighters in the Fighting Championship, so he’s taking his time accepting all offers. Lately, Justin has been reluctant to go into fights almost to get another shot at the title but has always dealt with his opponents confidently.

Rafael Fiziev: Ataman

Fiziev has looked pretty damn cool in the UFC since his debut. The Azerbaijani is currently on a streak of 5 wins in a row, never once making the judges doubt his victory.

Experts note that Rafael manages to achieve such a feat due to his superior kickboxing skills and unparalleled reaction time. Not without reason “Ataman” was given a second nickname “Neo”, after the fight, he managed to repeat the symbolism for the movie stunt of the main character with the evasion of the blow (we recommend appreciating the cut on YouTube).

Although Fiziev is many times inferior to Gatji in terms of experience, now is the time to gain it. Besides, Rafael will become almost the main contender for the fight with the champion in case of victory.
