Jan Blachowicz Drops Truth Bomb on Fighting Aleksander Rakic Ahead of UFC Vegas 54

Jan Blachowicz says he wants to kick “Aleksander Rakic’s a*s” ahead of their UFC Vegas 54 main event this upcoming Sunday.

With UFC 274 barely out of people’s minds, the UFC is headlining with another blockbuster event this coming week. Even though it is not a pay-per-view event, Blachowicz vs Rakic promises to be a banger. There is a lot going on in the Light Heavyweight division, and this fight will inevitably have a significant influence on the dynamics of the division.

Jan Blachowicz took the high road when he did not ask for an immediate rematch after losing his belt to Glover Texeira at UFC 267 back in October. Instead, he said he wants to fight his way back to a title shot. His fightback now pits him against Aleksander Rakic.

Rakic, who is ranked number 3 in the division, has title ambitions of his own. He is one of the most exciting, and explosive fighters in the division. Rakic, too, is looking to put his name in the title mix. The Serbian has lost only once in his entire UFC career.

Blachowicz acknowledged that Rakic is a very skilled opponent, but did not hid hide that he wants to beat him comprehensively to get a title shot,” I just want to kick his a*s. I want to win this fight. After this fight, I am going to be the next contender to fight for the belt.”

“This is an MMA fight, so we have to be ready for everything.”

Blachowicz might have his plans laid out infront of him, but rakic for sure will try to derail the narrative. With current champion Glover Texeira defending his title against Jiri Procházka in UFC 275 next month, the winner of Blachowicz vs Rakic will surely be next in line for the title.
