UFC Fight Night – Smith vs Teixeira

By: Shawn Porter

Fresh off the heels of a superb and largely successful UFC 249, the number one fight promotion in the world is at it again with a midweek fight night highlighted by a ranked Light Heavyweight clash.

UFC Fight Night – Smith vs Teixeira is taking place Wednesday, May 13th at 6:00 PDT from VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville Florida.

A great night of fights on ESPN+ will end with a LHW scrap pitting former title challengers against one another when the chiseled veteran, Glover Teixeira (#8), goes up against top prospect Anthony Smith (#4).

After going 2-1 in 2017, Teixeira only fought once in 2018 when he lost to Corey Anderson by DEC. Going 3-0 in 2019, Teixeira is looking to keep the momentum going with a win Wednesday night.

Smith, on the other hand, is still wearing the shine of a decent performance against division champ Jon Jones and late fight submission win against Gustafsson in June 2019.

Will the crisp boxing of Teixeira be enough to get the win and move him up in the rankings? Or, will Smith be able to make it a scrappier kickboxing match and remain in the top 5? We’re soon to find out!

The rest of the card has some bangers as well. The prelims will feature some exciting fights including Michael Johnson vs. Thaigo Moises and former Heavyweight champ Andrei Arlovski vs. Philipe Lins.

The main card starts off with a great match-up at Middleweight with Carl Roberson going up against Marvin Vettori. Even though Roberson is slated as a kickboxer, his only two finishes in the UFC have both been by submission. So, even though the fight could still end up being a stand up battle between two explosive fighters, keep an eye out for when they hit the ground!

The Co-Main Event is a HW fight between Ben Rothwell and Ovince Saint Preux. Debuting at the weight class, OSP has his work cut out for him. There’s no easy roads in the UFC and the promotion is giving him a tough but winnable matchup against a grizzly verteran in Rothwell.

The key to victory for Rothwell may be to stay out of striking range and get in close on OSP. With OSP surealy to be the quicker fighter, it’ll be interesting to see if he’s able to utilize those attributes towards winning rounds. Foot work will be key here, he’s got to stay off the cage against Rothwell.

No matter how the next few weeks go, we all love the sport and hope it, and more importantly, it’s athletes and other personalities remain in good health. This too shall pass, then hopefully we can get back to just fighting about questionable refereeing and clueless judging.
