UFC Fight Night Preview: Fiziev vs Gamrot



The UFC returns to Las Vegas on September 23, 2023, with a stacked card headlined by a lightweight clash between Rafael Fiziev and Mateusz Gamrot. Both fighters are on impressive winning streaks and looking to break into the top five of the division.


Fiziev (12-2) is a former Muay Thai champion who had won four straight fights in the UFC, including a unanimous decision over former lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos, but lost his last fight to the great Justin Gaethje. The Kazakhstan native is known for his explosive striking, especially his powerful kicks and punches. He has six knockouts in his career and has never been finished.


Gamrot (22-2-1) is a former KSW champion and is coming with decision win over Jalin Turner. The Polish fighter is a well-rounded mixed martial artist who can grapple, wrestle, and strike with equal proficiency. He has nine submissions and five knockouts in his career and has only lost once by split decision.


This fight promises to be a thrilling contest between two rising stars who have different styles but similar goals. Fiziev will look to use his striking advantage and keep the fight on the feet, while Gamrot will try to close the distance and take the fight to the ground. Both fighters are durable and confident, so expect fireworks from start to finish.


The co-main event features a featherweight bout between Bryce Mitchell and Dan Ige, two fighters who are also looking to climb the rankings. Mitchell (15-1) is a submission specialist who has won five straight fights in the UFC, including four by rear-naked choke. Ige (17-6) is a former contender series winner who has won two of his three fights in the UFC, including a knockout over Gavin Tucker in his last fight.


The main card also includes a women’s strawweight bout between Marina Rodriguez and Michelle Waterson-Gomez, a welterweight bout between Bryan Battle and AJ Fletcher, and a featherweight bout between Ricardo Ramos and Charles Jourdain.
