Report: Anthony Smith to Face Aleksandar Rakic Next
By FCF Staff
The light-heavyweight contenders have reportedly agreed to fight at the upcoming card, which is expected to take place in Las Vegas.
Rakic (12-2) is looking to get back on track, as the Austrian fighter had a 12 fight, winning streak snapped by Volkan Oezdemir in his last outing. Rakic lost the December fight via split decision.
Smith (33-15) is also coming off a loss, as the veteran was stopped by Glover Teixeira in May. Smith has gone 3-2 in his last five fights; the American’s other loss during that time came against champion, Jon Jones.
