Pleased to announce that I signed a new long term contract with 6 fights in the @ufc . This is the 3rd contract with the company in 2 years. Rocket Time . #ufc #contract #future #rocket #rockettime #mma #nike #swoosh #teamrakic
According to Rakic, this is the third contract he has signed with the promotion.
The contract comes on the heels of Rakic’s first UFC loss, a split decision against one-time light heavyweight title contender Volkan Oezdemir at UFC Busan in December. Rakic (12-2) debuted with the promotion in September 2017 and rattled off four consecutive wins over Francimar Barroso, Justin Ledet, Devin Clark, and Jimi Manuwa, the last two by first-round KO/TKO.
Rakic entered the week at No. 10 in the UFC’s official rankings. He does not currently have a fight scheduled.
