Reasons To Enjoy UFC Vegas 58

Rafael Fiziev is coming off a third-round wheel kick knockout victory over New Zealand kickboxing phenom Brad Riddell, so he enters this bout with a lot of self-confidence. Rafael dos Anjos was having ups and downs, but he fought some high-level opponents, plus Fiziev has never fought for five rounds. This might be a very hard fight for “Ataman”, knowing that dos Anjos has a lot of experience in five-round wars.

The co-main event is also the clash of styles, as the Armenian kickboxing demolisher Armen Petrosyan meets the ground fighting specialist from Brazil Caio “The Natural” Borralho. At least there is a huge possibility of stoppages in the main and co-main event of the evening.

The most promising clash of the UFC fight night card prelims is Aiemann Zahabi vs Ricky Turcios, as Zahabi looks to submit every single opponent in his way, while Turcios is known for devastating counters during clinch separations. Saidyokub Kakhramonov is looking to score another win, while the Kazakhstani striker Antonina Shevchenko is going to try to survive Cortney Casey’s high-level takedown offense.

UFC Vegas 58 is worth your attention, sit next to your device on Saturday at 6 PM ET, relax and enjoy watching UFC Fight Night: Dos Anjos Vs Fiziev, you might see many stoppages!
