MMA – The clash between Jan Blachowicz and Aleksandar Rakic will take place on March 26 in the light heavyweight category. Anthony Smith delivers his analysis.
On October 30, Jan Blachowicz lost his belt to Glover Teixeira. On this occasion, he suffered a rear strangulation during the second round. Jan has since spoken out and appeared particularly disappointed with his performance that evening. Thus, it will have the opportunity to bounce back from next March. Indeed, he will face Aleksandar Rakic in a duel at the top between numbers one and three in the category. Until then, the champion should make his first belt defense against intriguing and exciting Jiri Prochazka.
Anthony Smith himself is a competitor in this light heavyweight category. Ranked fourth, he also regularly dons the costume of commentator and analyst of the world of MMA. It is this second cap that interests us here. Indeed, Anthony Smith delivered an analysis of the upcoming opposition as well as his prognosis on the outcome of the duel. On Michael Bisping’s podcast, here’s what he says:
“Blachowicz is obviously a guy who exerts constant pressure. He likes to stay away from boxing, he handles kicks well. I think he is the best wrestler. Unless there is a big knockout, I think Jan is more technical, he has more tools to go for victory. But, one cannot avoid the power and the crazy athleticism that Rakic has at his disposal. Plus, this guy has rock-solid self-confidence, he’s hard to shake. “
Ultimately, Smith seems to side with Jan if he were to determine a winner. Anything can happen in a duel, especially with hard hitting athletes. The opposition could thus switch suddenly. See you on March 26 to assess the reliability of Anthony Smith’s prognosis.
