Saidyokub Kakhramonov is the UFC Vegas 58 fighter to watch

Fans should not skip out on Saidyokub Kakhramonov’s UFC Vegas 58’s fight.

UFC Vegas 58 will feature the headlining fight of Rafael dos Anjos and Rafael Fiziev. dos Anjos is on his last legs as a top fighter and Fiziev is on his way up the proverbial rankings. Yet, neither fighter made our pick to be the fighter to watch from the event. No, UFC Vegas 58’s fighter to watch is Saidyokub Kakhramonov.

The 26-year-old from Chicago is currently 9-2 and is a finishing machine so far in his career. He has seven finishes, three by KO/TKO and four by submission, with two losses to his name but none sense 2019.

He’s on a three-fight win streak and won his UFC debut against Trevin Jones in August of 2021, but hasn’t fought since. The bantamweight will take on Ronnie Lawrence to open the preliminary card, and could impress fans with his dynamic skill set.

Saidyokub Kakhramonov will entertain fans one way or another

Kakhramonov is one of the more interesting prospects on the card. He’s someone who isn’t afraid to push the action, as 10 of his 13 fights have all ended by some form of stoppage, with even one of his losses coming by way of a flying knee knockout.

Fans want action in their fights that culminate in finishes, that’s why Kakhramonov got the nod for the fighter to watch. That’s not all fans want, as skill and personality matter as well. It’s just that fans are more likely to tune in to a guy who’s unknown but exciting.

Ricky Turcios, another bantamweight who’s fighting Aiemann Zahabi later on in the night, was also a name we were keeping an eye on as well. Yet the big difference is that Turcois isn’t the same finisher that Kakhramonov is.

UFC Vegas 58: Rafael dos Anjos vs. Rafael Fiziev takes place on Saturday, July 9, 2022, live from the UFC APEX in Las Vegas, NV. Follow along with FanSided MMA who is on site for all your news and highlights.
