Anthony Smith, a long-time favorite of MMA Futures, steps back inside the Octagon to face Aleksandar Rakic Saturday night.
The two collide in the main event on ESPN+ from the UFC Apex in Las Vegas.
Along with Smith vs. Rakic, former champion Robbie Lawler battles Neil Magny, Alexa Grasso faces Ji Yeon Kim and Ricardo Lamas tangles with Bill Algeo.
Smith owns 33 career wins with 18 coming by knockout and 12 more via submission. Last year, he challenged Jon Jones for the UFC light heavyweight title, taking him to the distance at UFC 235.
