‘Rocket’ was suffocating and his combinations and attacks impressed the judges.
Mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter Aleksandar ‘Rocket’ Rakic emerged victorious at the UFC Vegas 8 main event this Saturday in which he faced American Anthony ‘Lionheart’ Smith. Although the Austrian was unable to close out his performance with a knockout, his absolute control during the three rounds was enough to earn the applause and admiration of the public.
Rakic based his strategy on an arsenal of kicks with which he was able to inflict enough damage. Smith tried to be aggressive and counter, but it wasn’t enough to handle the fight. Rocket was stifling, and although the display didn’t turn out to be the most exciting, his combinations and attacks to exhaust Lionheart impressed the judges, who gave him the winner by unanimous decision . “Total dominance,” wrote the ESPN network.
With this result, Rakic reached a record of 13 wins and two losses as a professional, erasing his fall against the Swiss Volkan Oezdemir, in his previous fight, in December, when he had a winning streak of 12 bouts. Also, the Austrian is emerging as a candidate for the title of light heavyweights in the division, after Jon Jones resigned in June due to differences with the president of the company, Dana White, says the media.
