Light heavyweight contender Aleksandar Rakic and former UFC light heavyweight Jimi Manuwa faced each other in the octagon in June 2019. However, three years later there is still alot of bad feelings between the two.

In a new video on Twitter, Rakic accuses Manuwa of sucker punching him at Saturday’s UFC London event.

“Jimi Manuwa, you piece of shit,” Rakic said. “You son of a bitch, what a pussy move you did last night on me. Guys, I would just like to let you know after the event at UFC London security was escorting me to the transfer back to the hotel and ‘Mr. Still Sleep’ was sitting in my row at the end of the row so I needed to pass him by. I passed by and he talked to me, something, I didn’t really pay attention. First and second, I have nothing to do with that guy. For me, this is over, so I start to turn away and he sucker punched me,” Rakic said in the video.
