- The "Ataman" now owns a five-fight winning streak in arguably one of the tough existing divisions.
- Fiziev declared that he wanted to take on Vince Vaughn next.
Kazakhstani-Kyrgyzstani professional Mixed Martial Artist Rafael Fiziev was in the great form not only when the action was on inside the Octagon but even after the match where he had emerged as the clear winner. When asked who he wants to take on next, he had an answer ready and also revealed that he just wanted three months to recover and be back for the next fight.
While Fiziev isn’t the first MMA fighter to call out his opponent, it was the manner in which he announced his intention to take on his next opponent that has left the netizens in the split. Fiziev declared that he wanted to take on Vince Vaughn.
We have one legend here, maybe he wants to fight with me: Fiziev
“Give me three months, and I’m ready to fight again,” Fiziev said in the Octagon when asked when he wants to fight again straight after the match.
“We have one legend here, maybe he wants to fight with me. Yeah, his name Vince Vaughn … Yeah, I love him,” he added.

Moreover, Vaughn was also present at the venue and started clapping as soon as he heard Fiziev’s comments. But it remains unlikely that he will take on Fiziev anytime soon especially after the manner in which Fiziev dominated Brad Riddell. The result was of particular significance as Riddell had entered the fight undefeated in his UFC career and after a Fight of the Night win against Drew Dober.
But ultimately, it was Fiziev who kept his winning way going at UFC Vegas 44. The “Ataman” put a stop to Riddell’s performance for the night in some fine fashion has came up with a tremendous wheel kick to knock his opponent out.
This result implied that the 28-year-old now owns a five-fight winning streak in arguably one of the tough existing divisions.
Post this, Fiziev also put out a little 2-minute video on his social media which was captioned, “A little tradition after the battle.”
