UFC Vegas 8 Poster Features Smith, Rakic, Lawler & Magny
UFC Vegas 8 is going down in just over a week, and recently the promotion shared out the card's new, official poster.
The UFC’s busy August will continue on into next weekend, and as a result, the official poster for UFC Vegas 8 has been shared out.
Anthony Smith vs. Aleksandar Rakic
In the card’s main event, Anthony Smith will battle fellow light heavyweight contender, Aleksandar Rakic.
Smith (33-15) is looking to get back on track, as he’s coming off a stoppage loss to Glover Teixeira in May. Prior to that, the former title challenger submitted Alexander Gustafsson last June.
Rakic (12-2), meanwhile, hasn’t fought since December when he lost via split decision to Volkan Oezdemir. Rakic had won 12 straight before taking that loss.
UFC Vegas 8 will also feature the return of former welterweight champ Robbie Lawler (28-14), who will battle longtime contender, Neil Magny (23-7)
