Sora Rakhmonova, the sister of UFC contender Shavkat Rakhmonov, earned a wild knockout in her latest MMA fight.
Rakhmonova is an up-and-coming flyweight fighter who fought against Valeria Karygina at Naiza FC 51 on Friday. She was looking to continue her rise in MMA after back-to-back wins.
After a relatively tame first round of action, Rakhmonova found her range on the feet and landed repeatedly to Karygina’s midsection. Karygina winced after a brutal liver shot and was forced against the fence, where Rakhmonova finished the fight similarly to her brother.

Rakhmonova is now 4-1 in her professional MMA career, with all five fights in Naiza FC. She made her professional debut in January 2021.
Rakhmonov will return later this year after finishing Geoff Neal at UFC 285. He is unbeaten in his MMA career and appears on the fast track to a potential welterweight title shot.
At 24 years old, Rakhmonova is a bright talent in MMA and could potentially make her way to the UFC with her brother soon.
