Haven't seen many threads about the fight recently. The fight is an absolute banger. Both guys have insane ko power, huge size, striking prowess and speed to match. Can't imagine the fight being boring in any way. Interestingly enough, Thiago Santos is listed as an underdog in the fight right now, albeit a small one. Not sure I agree with that, what do you guys think? Please some one add a poll, results would be interesting. Rakic looked like an absolute killer a couple years back when he knocked out Manuwa but his recent performances haven't been as dominant. Even so, Rakic has definitely proved he belongs at the top with his recent fights and everybody on notice with his ko power for sure. Also has brutal leg kicks, something Santos might want to watch out for. Santos, on the other hand, knocked out the champ just a couple fights ago and arguably won a fight against Jones in many eyes. Also, his recent performance against Glover wasn't really bad overall, he landed great shots, it's just his grappling is definitely his weakness. Rakic comes from Muay Thai background so don't expect to see much of grappling anyways. Gonna be a great fight but it might actually be the toughest fight to bet on for UFC 259 imo. I'm picking Santos.
