Aleksandar Rakic is making his case for a title fight with UFC light heavyweight champion Jan Blachowicz next.
“I think I deserve the title shot,” Rakic said in an 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?”
“I’m young, I’m hungry and motivated, and I’m here to stay. I told Dana White after the fight, ‘I’m gonna be your new guy and new face of the light heavyweight division.’ I’m gonna dominate the division for long and you’re gonna to see every fight a better Aleksandar Rakic.”
