Rakhmonov’s GNP without formal tools of control for grounded fighters might be the best in all of the UFC.

Magny is listening to his coaches. He’s trying very hard to execute what they are saying, but Shavkat is just overwhelming him. He’s not able to generate the necessary power in his movements.

Magny set the record for significant strikes landed against Rakhmonov in the UFC with 11.
He’s absorbed an average of 9 per bout in his four UFC appearances. Just cruising through his opponents thus far.
