Račić in bantamweight title bout
Superior FC also started to cooperate with Croatia’s Final Fight Championship and the two promotions already signed a deal on exchange of fighters. In this manner, FFC welterweight champion Roberto Sodić is also Superior FC champion. Europe’s best MMA middleweight fighter Abusupiyan “Abus” Magomedov scored a new win in the FFC ring a couple of weeks ago in Ljubljana, Slovenia, and he also fights under Superior FC banner. One of the best Croatia’s fighters Antun Račić will do the similar.
Former FFC champion Antun Račić scored a couple of successful wins in the FFC ring and on May 20 he is to fight for Superior FC bantamweight belt. His opponent will be Latvia’s Edgars Skrivers (10-4) and the bout promises to be one of the most exciting matches on the Superior FC 17 fight card.
In Dueren, Germany, Račić will have to do his best to win after a string of two losses. In his last match he lost at M-1 Challenge 69 in Russia in May 2016 when he was better than his opponent Musa Kazikhanov in theory, but judges scored a draw.
Račić has 18 wins, 7 losses and 1 draw in his professional MMA career, but having in mind that he is only 26, the best days are probably still ahead of him. Winning the Superior FC belt would probably be a big boost to Croatia’s MMA prospect. But he must not underestimate dangerous Edgar Skrivers. This 25-year-old fighter from Latvia has a score of 10 wins and 4 losses and he mostly fought in featherweight division. In his only Superior FC match he was defeated by Max Coge in October 2016.
