Everyone is geared up for UFC 276 next weekend, but there is one more event before that promotion. Arman Tsarukyan and Mateusz Gamrot will headline UFC Vegas 57 this weekend. Tsarukyan and Gamrot were both lightweight champions in other promotions before joining the UFC, and they are looking to make their mark. The exciting Shavkat Rakhmonov will also be in action, and he is the favorite to win Performance of the Night honors.

UFC Fight Night: Tsarukyan vs. Gamrot Picks
Arman Tsarukyan vs. Mateusz Gamrot Does Not Go the Distance -125
There’s a lot to like about Arman Tsarukyan. He is 18-2 in his professional career, and he has won five straight fights coming into this match. His only loss in the UFC was a unanimous decision defeat at the hands of Islam Makhachev, and that’s a quality defeat considering Makhachev is considered the best lightweight in the UFC by many observers. Tsarukyan has finished his last two opponents quickly, resulting in Performance of the Night bonuses.
Mateusz Gamrot came to the UFC two years ago after claiming both the KSW Featherweight Championship and KSW Lightweight Championship. He was 17-0 before coming to the UFC, but then he lost a split decision to Guram Kutateladze in his promotion debut. Gamrot has since responded with three convincing wins, finishing all three of those opponents in two rounds.
Both Tsarukyan and Gamrot have quality finishing power and solid ground games, so it is very unlikely that this match lasts the distance.
Shavkat Rakhmonov to Win Inside Distance -160 vs. Neil Magny
The fighter that everyone is looking forward to seeing on Saturday night is Shavkat Rakhmonov. He has been a force of nature in his MMA career, finishing all 15 of his opponents. Rakhmonov finished 14 of his 15 foes inside of two rounds, and he claimed the KZMMAF Welterweight Championship and M-1 Welterweight Championship before moving to the UFC.
Neil Magny is one of the longest tenured fighters in the UFC. Magny has 26 fights under his belt in this promotion, and he has become something of a gatekeeper. He has never been good enough to challenge for a title and has lost every promotion he has headlined, but he has defeated most of his other opponents. Magny does have a reach advantage and experience, yet Rakhmonov is far more explosive.
Josh Parisian vs. Alan Baudot Does Not Go the Distance -160
Both these fighters are in desperate need of a big win. Josh Parisian is 1-2 since joining the UFC and his lone victory came by split decision, while Alan Baudot has lost in all three of his fights at this level. The loser of this fight is very unlikely to be re-signed by the UFC, so look for Parisian and Baudot to come out swinging. Neither fighter can afford a ho-hum three rounds, and we are likely to see Parisian and Baudot take chances.
