Jan Blachowicz vs. Aleksandar Rakic Rebooked For May 14th UFC Card

A fight between ranked light heavyweight Aleksandar Rakic and former titleholder Jan Blachowicz is back on the schedule. The matchup is reportedly set to headline a UFC “Fight Night” card on May 14th, per Ariel Helwani.

The fight is expected to take place at the UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.

A fight between Rakic and Blachowicz was first booked for a late March card but was removed from that lineup after Blachowicz suffered an injury.

The booking gives Blachowicz a chance to earn a win for the first time since he dropped the UFC Light Heavyweight Championship to Glover Teixeira last year.

Rakic also has the opportunity to earn a massive win to boost his rise up the light heavyweight division. His last fight now dates back to over a year ago, defeating former title challenger Thiago Santos at UFC 259.

Here’s how UFC’s May 14th card looks with the new main event in place:

Bout 6: Jan Blachowicz (28-9) vs. Aleksandar Rakic (14-2) (Light Heavyweight)

Bout 5: Viviane Araujo (10-3) vs. Andrea Lee (13-5) (Flyweight)

Bout 4: Jamall Emmers (18-6) vs. Daniel Pineda (27-14) (Featherweight)

Bout 3: Frank Camacho (22-9) vs. Manuel Torres (12-2) (Lightweight)

Bout 2: Virna Jandiroba (17-3) vs. Angela Hill (13-11) (Strawweight)

Bout 1: Nick Maximov (8-0) vs. Andre Petroski (7-1) (Middleweight)
