Rafael Fiziev earned the biggest win of his career thus far by knocking out Rafael dos Anjos in the main event of UFC Vegas 58.

Fiziev achieved an incredible feat as he became the third man to successfully put away Brazil's former lightweight champion. It all came down to the final round when Fiziev landed a devastating left hook that sent dos Anjos crashing to the ground. After following up with a few more strikes, referee Mark Smith called the stoppage.

In doing so, Fiziev also earned the bragging rights to call himself "the best Rafael in the UFC." He proceeded to issue a challenge to tennis superstar Rafael Nadal to continue his tradition of humorous post-fight call-outs.

Told you, I’m the best Rafael in UFC 😁
