Aleksandar Rakic has continued his winning streak in the UFC with a fourth-consecutive victory, this time over Jimi Manuwa, in Stockholm.

Rakic needed just 47 seconds to finish Manuwa in the co-main event, landing a devastating kick to the head which floored the Englishman.

The victory means Rakic now has the second-longest active run of wins in-a-row in the UFC’s light heavyweight division.

Meanwhile, in the main event of the night, Anthony Smith would prevail over Alexander Gustafsson with a fourth-round submission.

Gustafsson announced after the bout that he will retire from fighting.

“It feels like I don’t have it in me anymore to be honest,” Gustafsson said.

“I did a mistake that I shouldn’t do and I just have a feeling it’s the time now.”
