The popular video of UFC analyst and commentator Laura Sanko praising Shavkat Rakhmonov has been addressed. Sanko and the other commentators on the UFC Weigh-In Show in 2022 talked about Khamzat Chimaev and Shavkat Rakhmonov, two undefeated UFC welterweights.
Despite praising Shavkat Rakhmonov and Khamzat Chimaev for their abilities and unblemished MMA histories, Laura Sanko seemed to go all out for Rakhmonov. Afterwards, a video of her praising “Nomad” went viral. She said that she would definitely get frightened but still wants to interview him, as seen in the video. To quote Sanko:
“That man, Shavkat Rakhmonov, makes me shiver. I’ve never spoken with him. I haven’t spoken to him before, but I want to [interview him/speak to him]. I am nervous though. He is 16 years old. He always completes his tasks.” Rakhmonov, an established MMA fighter of Kazakh descent and top-tier welterweight prospect, was born in Uzbekistan. The 28-year-old will make his octagon comeback this Saturday at UFC 285. Rakhmonov participated in the UFC 285 media day and answered many inquiries from the media.
The next welterweight was questioned on the widely shared footage of Sanko praising him. Rakhmonov provided a remark through a translator that had the reporters in fits of laughter, and he also laughed along with them. With a smile, “Nomad” said:
“Undoubtedly, I watched the video. What else am I supposed to say? You always enjoy it as a man when a woman adores you. What else can I say, then? I’m done now.”
Shavkat Rakhmonov looks to continue climbing the welterweight ranks at UFC 285
In the promotion thus far, Shavkat Rakhmonov, who made his UFC debut in October 2020, has a 4-0 record. His overall MMA performance in the professional sphere is 16-0. In June 2022, Rakhmonov’s most recent contest saw him submit seasoned UFC fighter Neil Magny in the second round.
Although many believe “Nomad” will eventually become the UFC welterweight champion, he must win his next match in order to keep climbing the MMA food chain at a breakneck pace. At UFC 285 on March 4, the No. 9 UFC welterweight Rakhmonov will face the No. 7 UFC welterweight Geoff Neal.
Fearsome knockout artist Geoff Neal is currently riding a two-fight winning streak. He is also known as “Handz of Steel,” and because of his (Neal’s) skill with the sword, is said to be a challenging opponent for grappling whiz Rakhmonov. The general assumption is that if Rakhmonov defeats Neal, he might then face a top-five welterweight.
