Aleksandar Rakic wants to fight Jiri Prochazka next.
Both fighters are vying for a light heavyweight title shot with most observers in agreement that Prochazka — fresh off his knockout of Dominick Reyes — is guaranteed to get the next shot.
Enter Rakic. The Austrian is on a two-fight winning streak and has won six of his seven UFC fights overall. He believes he not only has a shout for the title, but matches up well with Blachowicz.
But given the state of the title picture, he also believes it only makes sense to fight Prochazka in a title eliminator. A contract has even seemingly been sent — Prochazka just has to sign it.
“Have you signed our fight contract yet, Samurai or are you really this dumb to sit out and wait over a year until Jan/Glover decide to come back?🤦🏻♂️#FutureChamp🚀”
For his part, Prochazka doesn’t seem to pay too much attention to Rakic as he continues to post nature-based training photos.
Safe to say, he doesn’t mind waiting and while a fight with Rakic would be nice in the meantime, Prochazka has earned the right to wait out a title shot. Especially given his war with Reyes only took place four months ago.
