How does Aleksandar Rakic arrive?

Rakic, a pre-ranked 5 in the light heavyweight division, has a 6-1 UFC record since joining the division, with his only loss coming to Volkan Oezdemir by split decision in December 2019.

He's a fighter who can punch, but his weakness at least in his last few fights is that his decisions go to the final round. He will require something more against a dangerous opponent like Blachowicz.

6:11 PM10 days ago

How does Jan Blachowicz arrive?

The Polish fighter is looking to regain lost ground, the former UFC light heavyweight champion will have in Aleksandar Rakic, an opponent worthy of a big fight, in case of winning he will recover some of the lost in his last fights.
