By Tristen Critchfield Nov 22, 2021


A welterweight matchup pitting Shavkat Rakhmonov against Carlston Harris is on tap for an Ultimate Fighting Championship card on Feb. 5.

The Freak MMA Instagram page was first to report the welterweight booking. The event does not yet have an official location or headliner.

Kazakhstan’s Rakhmonov is unbeaten in his first 14 professional appearances — including victories in UFC competition. The fighter known as “Nomad” debuted with a first-round submission of Alex Oliveira at UFC 254 before tapping out Michel Prazeres with a rear-naked choke in his most recent outing at UFC Fight Night 190 on June 26. The Kazakhstan Top Team product has finished all of his triumphs inside the distance.

Harris enters the matchup on a five-bout winning streak. That run includes a pair of victories in the Octagon: a first-round submission of Christian Aguilera at UFC on ESPN 24 and a first-round TKO of Impa Kasanganay at UFC Fight Night 192. The 34-year-old Guyana native is 17-4 over the course of a professional tenure that began in 2011.
