Anthony Smith - Alexander Rakich: how will the fight end?
30/08/2020, at 02:00 GTM
Anthony has won 32 professional matches.
Smith defeated Gustafsson in the battle before last.
The Austrian lost in the previous meeting.
Anthony had a huge number of fights in his career and to be precise, he appeared in the Octagon at a professional level 47 times and achieved success in 35 fights. Recently, he has been alternating victories with defeats. However, his rivals in the cage are always very serious, as a rule.
For example, Smith lost to John Jones by unanimous decision, then won by choke over Alexander Gustafsson and lost to Glover Teixeira this May. The American is not afraid to trade in the standing position, and therefore he misses a lot. However, “Lionheart” has finished its rivals many times and only two fights ended in total in his favor by decision.

Alexander does not have the same experience in the UFC as his rival and has had a total of five fights in this promotion. He was on a streak of 12 pro wins, but lost last December by split decision to Volkan Oezdemir. We emphasize that the Austrian knocked out Devin Clarke and Jimi Manuva.
Rakich has good punching technique and delivers powerful hits on the top floor and also works great with his feet. He has currently nine early victories. However, due to a lack of experience, he may have big problems in the upcoming meeting, because Alexander had not fought with such rivals before.
In our opinion, Anthony is undeservedly an outsider of this fight, because he has huge experience behind his back and he had powerful opposition in the Octagon in recent meetings, which cannot be said in favor of the Austrian. Yes, Alexander is good in standing, but if something happens, Smith can switch to the ground, where he will have great chances of winning.
Our prediction is a victory for Anthony Smith for 3.35 in BC 1xBet.
