Who exactly is this Azat Maksum? An unbeaten fighter from Kazakhstan is scheduled to make their UFC debut at event number 77 in Las Vegas.


On the program for UFC Vegas 77, which takes place this coming weekend, there will be a debut that fans have been looking forward to seeing. Unbeaten Azat Maksum will make his first appearance for the promotion.

Maksum is a male athlete who competes in the flyweight division for the men. He was born in Kazakhstan. The 28-year-old competitor has a perfect record of 16-0 as a fighter and possesses a very diverse arsenal. He has won all of his fights by a combination of knockouts, submissions, and unanimous decisions.

As of late, ‘Qaraq’ has been competing under the banner of the Octagon League, and the main event of his most recent fight, Octagon 39: Maksum vs. Nunes, was headlined by him. He competed against Fabricio Nunes and exited the organization on a high note by defeating his opponent with a submission victory using the Brabo Choke in the first round.

After Azat Maksum’s signing with the UFC in the beginning of this year, their manager, Nuraddin Sadykov, posted their reactions on Instagram to convey what they thought about the decision. According to Maksum’s manager, ‘Qaraq’ is meant to compete in the top promotion and against the best fighters when he gets to that point in his career. It was written that

“After having a number of battles in a row, we have participated in a number of fights that have not been documented for a considerable amount of time and performed an excellent job. Since then, Azat has successfully defended his title in the OCTAGON league eight times, winning the majority of his bouts via knockout. While this was going on, the members of Bahrain’s BRAVE league were selected.
He added:

Anyway, if Azat mentions the OCTAGON league, it means that we have progressed to the point where the OCTAGON will remember Azat. Because of this, today is an important day in the history of mixed martial arts (MMA) in Kazakhstan!

Who is Azat Maksum fighting at UFC Vegas 77?

This coming weekend, Azat Maksum will take his first steps into the octagon of the Ultimate Fighting Championship as he gets ready to make his debut at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas.

The challenger competing in the men’s flyweight division will have to go up against the seasoned and experienced Tyson Nam. The 39-year-old fighter has 35 bouts to his name over the course of his career and faced Bruno Gustavo da Silva in his most recent bout back in March. He was submitted in the second round of the bout, but he has won three of his past five fights and has earned himself a bonus for having the best performance of the night.

Despite the fact that Nam is getting closer to the end of his career, fans anticipate that he will provide the newcomer with a challenging introduction to life in the UFC. Even though he’s getting close to 40 years old, Tyson Nam probably has a lot more experience than the opponents Azat Maksum has fought, which means that the Kazakh fighter will have to perform at his absolute best if he wants to win this weekend.
