UFC Announces Anthony Smith Vs. Aleksander Rakic For Aug. 29
UFC has just announced Anthony Smith vs. Aleksander Rakic as the new headliner for Aug. 29. The original plan was Zabit Magomedsharipov vs. Yair Rodriguez, but that was canceled once Rodriguez hurt his ankle. Sixth straight headliner for Smith.
