Mexican Independence Day Showdown: Rakhmonov And Gastelum Set To Ignite the Octagon

Shavkat Rakhmonov is set to make his highly-anticipated return to the Octagon on September 16th, 2023.

The UFC’s Mexican Independence Day show at the iconic T-Mobile Arena promises to be a night of electrifying action, headlined by the fierce championship battle between Alexa Grasso and Valentina Shevchenko.

But that’s not all! In a jaw-dropping co-main event, Rakhmonov, a rising star from Kazakhstan, will go head-to-head against the resilient Kelvin Gastelum.

Kelvin Gastelum himself expressed his eagerness for this monumental matchup, stating, “Dana was talking about doing a huge Mexican Independence Day event in Las Vegas… September 16 at the T-Mobile Arena, wherever it may be, as your man in Kazakhstan would say, GGG, big drama show. Let’s get it on. I accept, Shavkat.”

With an impressive 17-0 record, Rakhmonov aims to extend his dominance by adding Gastelum’s name to his growing list of conquests.

The card is stacked with other high-octane bouts. Chris Curtis squares off against Anthony Hernandez, promising a clash of raw power and skill, while Loopy Godinez takes on Sam Hughes in a battle that guarantees non-stop action.

Don’t miss out on this historic night of fights!
