Faceoffs don’t get any closer than the one we just saw from UFC Vegas 54 main eventers Jan Blachowicz and Aleksander Rakic.
Jan Blachowicz and Aleksander Rakic got as close as close gets during the UFC Vegas 54 weigh-in staredowns, pressing their faces together as they locked eyes in an intense face-off. Things didn’t get out of control as Blachowicz established nostril dominance over Rakic, pressing his opponent’s nose to the side.
Blachowicz and Rakic are set to fight in the main event of UFC Vegas 54 on Saturday. Blachowicz is coming off a disappointing second round submission loss to Glover Teixeira that cost him his light heavyweight title. Rakic is on his way up in the division, having gone 14-2 in his career and 6-1 in the UFC with his sole promotional defeat a split-decision against Volkan Oezdemir.
Take a look at the two light heavyweights facing off:
