Aleksandar Rakić

UFC 231 Got started off with a bang as Aleksandar Rakić absolutely smoked Devin Clark in the evenings opening bout.

 Austria’s Rakić wasted little time getting the action going in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. 

The two light heavyweights went back and forth for just over four minutes. Then the heavily favorited Rakić ended Clark’s night with a spinning back fist followed by some punches.

With the win, Rakic improves to 11-1. He defentily looks the part of a high-level light heavyweight. It will be interesting to see what 2019 brings for Rakic.
