UFC Vegas 54 Live Scores: When, Where and Who?
UFC Vegas 54: Blachowicz vs. Rakic will take place on Saturday, May 14 at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The UFC Vegas 54 fight card is headlined by a light heavyweight contender bout, as the promotion looks to field a challenger for the winner of the upcoming title fight between champ Glover Teixeira and Jiri Prochazka.
UFC Vegas 54 Main Event: Jan Blachowicz vs. Aleksandar Rakic
Blachowicz (28-9) is the former UFC light heavyweight champion. He is 9-2 in his last 11 fights, including losing the belt to Teixeira at UFC 267 last October. Looking for a way back to the belt, Blachowicz could move into the lead with an impressive win over Rakic.
Currently ranked No. 3 in the 205-pound division, Rakic (14-2) has had a stumble in his quest for UFC gold. It was a questionable split decision loss to Volkan Oezdemir over two years ago. He has since rebounded with victories over top fighters Anthony Smith and Thiago Santos. A win over the likes of Blachowicz would easily propel him into the top spot as far as title contention goes.
UFC Vegas 54 Co-Main Event: Ryan Spann vs. Ion Cutelaba
The UFC Vegas 54 co-main event features Ryan Spann (19-7) and Ion Cutelaba (16-6-1, 1NC). It’s another light heavyweight fight, but it doesn’t carry nearly the weight of the main event. Spann, however, is trying to get back on winning streak after a loss to Anthony Smith, while Cutelaba is trying to build momentum after picking up her first win in two years last September.
