Santos (21-9 MMA, 13-8 UFC) faced Rakić (14-2 MMA, 6-1 UFC) in an important light heavyweight clash at UFC 259 in March. Both men were joking about the competitive status of the title.
Among what was predicted to be the burn burner between the two most prolific knockout artists in the category, Rakitch pointed out Santos in a rather trivial case.
Rakitch seems unabashed in criticism and has recently been devoted to the title battle after recording light heavyweight champion Jan Blawowic saying he “winned easily” to Santos.
Rakitch seemed to dominate their fight, but overall stats favored Santos – and “Maretta” reminded him of it.
