Jan Blachowicz Aleksandar Rakic Prediction
In this fight, we will give a small advantage to Rakic, who has a solid knockout power and is 9 years younger than his opponent. But Blakhovich should not be underestimated either, not so long ago the Pole owned the title and successfully defended it against Adesanya for all 25 minutes. Jan should not take risks and get into trouble, so as not to fly off by KO, and Alexander will try to work on cardio, given the age of the opponent. We believe that the fighters will reach the 3rd round.
