UFC Fight Night live updates and results: Smith vs. Rakic

MMA

For the fifth consecutive week, the UFC is back inside its Apex facility on Saturday in Las Vegas, with a UFC Fight Night beginning with prelims at 6 p.m. ET on ESPN/ESPN+, then a main card exclusively on ESPN+ at 9 p.m.

In the main event, former light heavyweight title challenger Anthony Smith (33-15) will look to rebound from one of the worst nights of his career when he takes on up-and-comer Aleksandar Rakic (12-2) of Austria. Smith is less than four months removed from a TKO loss to Glover Teixeira in which he suffered a broken orbital, broken nose and lost multiple teeth.

Saturday’s event also features the return of former welterweight champion Robbie Lawler (28-14), who will make his first appearance of 2020 against Neil Magny (23-7).

Brett Okamoto, Marc Raimondi and Jeff Wagenheim recap the action as it happens in Las Vegas.
