There was a pretty ridiculous Matrix-like kick dodge at UFC's Fight Island 2 on Saturday night.

Rafael Fiziev took down Marc Diakiese on Saturday night at UFC Fight Island 2. He won the fight with a unanimous decision, 30-27, 29-28 and 29-28.

Fiziev had one incredible kick dodge that has since gone viral on social media. The fighter avoided a powerful leg strike from Marc Diakiese with a dodge out of the Matrix.

"HE ENTERED THE MATRIX!" UFC's official twitter account said,"

HE ENTERED THE MATRIX! 🤯 @RafaelFiziev with a move out of a video game.

" data-focusable="true">@RafaelFiziev with a move out of a video game." It's pretty incredible to watch:

Fiziev has now won two straight matches. He improved his career record to 8-1-0 following Saturday night's win.

The Kyrgyzstani MMA star kept things simple while speaking to the media following his win on Saturday night.

“I win today but from God, everything I have, what God want, I’m happy for this,” Fiziev said following his victory over Diakiese.

It's unclear what is next for Fiziev, but it's clear that he's a fighter to watch moving forward. If he can continue to dodge strikes like he's in The Matrix, he'll certainly become somewhat of a fan favorite.

UFC is set to continue to have matches on its "Fight Island" moving forward.
