A pair of light heavyweight contenders will clash in March when Aleksandar Rakic takes on Thiago Santos.
Rakic is coming off the biggest win of his career. He beat Anthony Smith by decision at UFC Fight Night+ 33 in August.
Santos will make a quick turnaround from his submission loss to Glover Teixeira at UFC on ESPN 17 this past Saturday. It was the Brazilian’s first fight since double knee surgeries, which were injuries sustained in his split decision defeat to Jon Jones at UFC 239 in July 2019.
