Anthony Smith is motivated about his upcoming bout at UFC Vegas 8. The 32-year-old is set to face Aleksandar Rakic in the Co-Main event of the fight night.
Anthony Smith, who is going to make his second Octagon appearance in 3 months, is in good spirits about his forthcoming Light Heavyweight battle against Aleksandar Rakic. Smith lost to Glover Teixeira in May, via a fifth round TKO, but has evidently recovered quickly to again set foot in the ring.
On August 29, the Lionheart (33-15), will face 28-year-old Aleksandar Rakic (12-2), who is making a comeback of sorts and has substantially lesser experience in comparison.
“I Don’t Give a S— About Aleksandar Rakic”
Anthony Smith who has has his fair share of ups and downs in his previous couple of fights, is happy that he is competing again, and may as well be aware that the odds are against him this time.

In a chat with MMA Fighting.com, The No.5 in the Light Weight division expressed his views on his bout and said, “I’m fresh out of fks to give and I couldn’t be happier. I’m in such a good place right now. I’ve never lost two in a row in the UFC. It’s never happened and I think it’s because of this mindset I’m in right now. I am out of fks to give. I just want to go fight and have fun.
“When my back’s against the wall, is when I’m most dangerous. When I fail, I always bounce back stronger. Every time. I don’t expect this to be any different. I’m going to go in there and whatever happens, happens. I’m fairly unconcerned with the result, I’m focused on what happens between the bells. I don’t really care what happens after the last bell.”
Light Heavyweight division right now does not have a champion figure, but with Jan Blachowicz Vs. Dominick Reyes set for UFC 253, the weight class will get its new talisman. However, this fight at Vegas 8 can serve as an opportunity for either Smith or Rakic to climb up the ladder and present future contendership.
