A middleweight for most of his career, Smith moved to light heavyweight in 2018 (where he is currently ranked fifth) and has won four of his six fights at this weight class.

Smith’s opponent is Aleksander Rakic, a rising star from Austria who currently holds a record of 12 wins and only two defeats. Rakic signed on with the UFC in 2017 and has won four of his five fights since then, but his single UFC loss was his most recent fight last December. Rakic and Smith are both entering the Octagon at the UFC Apex having lost their latest bouts, so each man will be fighting hard to claim the win at this UFC Fight Night — a victory that will bring one of them closer to a shot at the light heavyweight title.
