UFC Fight Night Results Highlights: Jan Blachowicz wins after Aleksandar Rakic ​​is injured. more knockouts


Jan Blachowicz may have reclaimed the UFC light heavyweight title in an unexpected way. Vlakovich was banned from continuing the fight after he defeated Aleksandar Rakić in the main event of UFC Fight Night in Las Vegas.

Both Blachowicz and Rakic ​​were dedicated to lower leg kicks, which were primarily aimed at the front calves. The light heavyweights each had more success in strikes earlier, but it was Blachowicz who started the better boxing combination. A solid 3-2 arrived early for Blachowicz and the jab-straight was a reliable tool for the former champion.

Rakic ​​leaned on his wrestling in the second kite, something he didn’t implement in the first round. Rakic ​​grabbed Blachowicz’s leg and shook it high, and Blachowicz fell on his back. Rakic ​​succeeded with a short punch and elbow from inside the guard, rejecting Blachowicz’s attempt at a triangle choke.

Blachowicz returned with a lead leg kick early in the third round, setting the tone for an unexpectedly unfortunate finish. Rakic ​​bounced off his hind paws and crumpled to the ground almost immediately. The referee immediately stopped the match and awarded Blachowicz a TKO victory. The replay showed something sticking out from under his knee as Rakic ​​took a step backwards.

Despite a severe leg injury, Rakic ​​still limped across the Octagon for the official referee and had friendly conversations with his opponent. Blachowicz and Rakic ​​showed tremendous respect after the match, congratulating each other and expressing their appreciation for the match.

“I couldn’t see anything in my eyes,” Blachowicz told Michael Bisping in a post-match interview about the punches Rakic ​​threw. “Hope the UFC give them a chance for the next title… Glover” [Teixeira]i keep my fingers [crossed] You and I hope we can fight again. Thank you.

“This is our secret weapon. We practice. [leg kicks] Always in the gym. Rakic ​​has long legs… I knew he could hold him and slow him down.”

Blachowicz recovered from a second round submission loss to Teixeira in October, improving professionally to 29-9. Blachowicz lost the UFC light heavyweight title to Teixeira and lost stakes to five wins against Israel Adesanya, Dominick Reyes, Corey Anderson, Jacare Souza and Luke Rockhold. Rakic ​​(14-3) had amazing victories over Thiago Santos and Anthony Smith.

Cutrava (guillotine choke) through 1st round submission

Davey Grant stops Louis Smolka in a tough fight.

Grant and Smolka put on a great show. Grant knocked down Smolka in Round 1 with a jab and looked set to maintain a noticeable edge for the rest of the game. Smolka absorbed the big blow in round two and took over as Grant began to tire. Smolka found sanctuary for a brutal elbow and was able to threaten a submission after gaining supreme control. Grant was patient and got a second blow in the third round. The low-leg kick that Grant utilized in all of his fights visibly damaged Smolka, the latter immediately shooting for a takedown. Grant paid Smolka in pounds and the nasty lands to block Smolka. Grant Def. Small car through 3 round KO (Punch)

Manuel Torres beats Frank Camacho in gunfight

Torres and Camacho didn’t want to take things slow. The two fighters immediately split each other with powerful punches and combinations. It was Torres who landed more often on Camacho’s already weathered chin. More than half of Camacho’s losses are by knockouts, including three of his last four. Torres tore Camacho to pieces with a combination of punches that laid the veteran on the ground and didn’t follow up with a ground and pound when referee Herb Dean mercifully defeated the fight. Torres Def. Camacho via 1st round TKO (Punch)
