Aleksandar Rakic Wants Jan Blachowicz Light Heavyweight Title Fight

Last updated

Aleksandar Rakic recently spoke to MMAFighting. The Light Heavyweight contender discussed a number of topics during the interview, including his want for a UFC Light Heavyweight title fight against Jan Blachowicz.

‘I think I deserve the title shot,’ Rakic said in the interview with MMA Fighting. ‘If you see realistically I am 7-0 in the UFC, this one loss against Volkan [Oezdemir] wasn’t a loss, and Thiago was the third former title challenger in a row, and I beat all of them. So, who else, you know? Who else?’

‘Why not?’ Rakic continued. ‘I’m young, I’m hungry and motivated, and I’m here to stay. I told Dana White after [my last] fight, ’˜I’m gonna be your new guy and new face of the light heavyweight division.’”

“I’m gonna dominate the division for long; you’re gonna to see every fight a better Aleksandar Rakic’ the 205 pound challenger added.

Aleksandar Rakic finished by saying that he is taking a calm approach to the division, trying not to leave himself open for a knockout. ‘I don’t want to force the finish. Because if I force the finish it can go the other way and I can get knocked out,’ Rakic noted.

‘I worked so hard to be there right now in this spot and I didn’t want to force so much, you know? I want to pick the clean shot and the knockout will come by himself” Aleksandar Rakic concluded. “If you force it, you cannot get it. We are all top athletes in this division and one punch can change everything, and I prove to the division that I can knock people out as well.’
