After very close two rounds, Fiziev took control of the fight in the third and landed a perfectly timed spinning wheel kick. The referee, Herb Dean stepped in to stop the fight. With the win, ‘Ataman,’ is now on a five-fight win streak. During the post-fight interview with Daniel Cormier, he was asked about who he would like to fight next. He said, “I don’t want to call someone, but give me three months and I’m ready for fight again. And we have one legend here, maybe he want to fight with me. Yeah, yeah, yeah, his name, Vince Vaughn.”

Who’s next for Rafael Fiziev?

The Kazakhstan-born Kyrgyzstani fighter is on a great run and is a very dangerous fighter. He is currently on a five-fight win streak and will look for a bigger fish for his next fight. With the win over Riddell, he will jump up in rankings and will look for a top 10 fighter to fight next.

With his power and skills, Fiziev is a real threat in the division. A couple of more wins against some of the bigger names in the lightweight division. He can push for a title shot. Conor McGregor is still out injured and Dan Hooker is switching his division. That will make his rise in rankings a bit easier.

As far as Riddell is concerned, he would want to go back to the drawing board. He definitely is a strong contender in the division and will look to find momentum quickly. He was on a seven-fight win streak before the fight, with four wins coming in the UFC.
