<strong>Jamshid Kenzhayev, a 25-year-old mixed martial arts fighter, died in hospital after an August 8 confrontation with security at a local nightclub in Tashkent, Uzbekistan’s capital city.</strong> According to reports from the scene, a confrontation between Kenzhayev and the security staff of the Aurum 898 nightclub in the Yunusabad district of Tashkent ensued after the fighter was allegedly found to be carrying a knife while attempting to gain entry. <figure> <img src="https://cdni.rt.com/files/2018.08/article/5b701bf4dda4c80e478b461a.jpg"> <figcaption> / <span class="copyright">Free</span></figcaption> </figure>
