                        <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.
