The 205lb division could be set for a shake-up this weekend as former champion Jan Blachowicz defends his status as the number one contender against Aleksandar Rakic at the UFC APEX in Las Vegas.

Blachowicz had been set to fight his Austrian opponent back in March only for injury to delay the contest - but the Polish star returns this Saturday for the first time in more than six months looking to remind the world he remains a top dog at light heavyweight.

Rakic, meanwhile, will be hoping to secure a third straight win having decisioned Anthony Smith and Thiago Santos on his way to Saturday night's showdown against Blachowicz.

The 30-year-old knows a statement win against Blachowicz could be all that stands between him and a shot at the 205lb title later this year.

Elsewhere, there's more action across the light heavyweight landscape with Ryan Spann taking on Ion Cutelaba in what promises to be a thriller while it lasts.

And there's significant British interest on the card with our very own Davey Grant looking to get back to winning ways when he takes on Louis Smolka in a bantamweight contest not to be missed.

That comes after Birmingham flyweight Jake Hadley makes his promotional debut having been personally plucked from Dana White's Contender Series by the UFC head honcho himself.

Hadley takes on 30-year-old Brazilian Allan Nascimento.

With all that and much more coming your way this Saturday night, here's all the info you need to watch or live stream UFC Fight Night: Blachowicz vs Rakic on BT Sport.
