I'm backing RAKIC on Saturday night. Having "earned" a split decision loss against Jones, Santos is obviously no slouch. Still, he's off b2b losses and now has eight of them. Both fighters are well-rounded, both can grapple and both are strong on their feet. Lets not forget that Santos, now 37 years old, has dealt with serious knee injuries though. Rakic is younger and his big leg kicks are going to be tough on Santos. Not only does Rakic land more strikes per minute, he's taller with a reach advantage. While it should be exciting while it lasts, I see the younger Rakic winning this one by KO.
