Jan Blachowicz defeats Aleksandar Rakic via injury TKO

Jan Blachowicz defeated Aleksandar Rakic by TKO Saturday night at UFC Fight Night in Las Vegas when Rakic injured his knee, ending their bout in the third round.

Blachowicz was declared the winner by medical stoppage at 1:11 of the round in their light heavyweight main event.

“This is what I expect,” Blachowicz said afterward. “The first round, something happened with my eye. But I feel the first round was really good. He has an injury, it is what it is. S— happens sometimes. I cannot wait to step inside again. I hope the UFC gives me the next title shot.”

In a closely contested bout to that point, the fighters were sparring toe-to-toe. However, Rakic took a step back and appeared to blow out his knee, crumbling backward to the canvas.

The fighters landed a similar amount of punches but Rakic had 4:33 of control to that point.

MMA Fighting reports Rakic will have an MRI on his knee Monday.
