Aleksandar Rakić is an Austrian mixed martial artist (MMA professional since 2011) of Serbian descent. He is one of a few “Neo-Souls” or (much needed) new blood in the Light Heavyweight division (205 lbs) in the UFC, where there hasn’t been a real threat to Jon Jones in many moons. He trains out of Gym 23 while home, and (ATT) American Top Team when stateside, which is an excellent choice of course.
At only 27 years old, the Serbian from Vienna, Austria is seemingly equal parts grappling IQ, and vicious knockout power via cerebral approach striking. He has the frame (6′ 5″ w/ a 78″ reach), experience at a young age (boxing & kickboxing since 14, grappling since 19) and ability to sleep (9 of 12 straight wins (he is 12-1, lost via submission in debut in 2011) came via KO / TKO) that has the MMA Community buzzing after his destruction of Jimi Manuwa Saturday in less than a minute.
As I find myself saying often lately defensive striking is an overlooked facet of MMA, and with numbers, like 5.31 significant strikes landed per minute vs. 1.61 absorbed, I’d be willing to say he qualifies. Other exciting prospects with similarly large frames and athleticism like Johnny Walker (also 27) already has 3 losses and maybe potentially injury-prone (though his wild ways maybe his strength).
