Smith vs. Teixeira

The headlining fight is one of the must-see variety, as it features two of the more aggressive and dangerous finishers in the 205 division.

Smith (32-14) is looking to build on a submission win he scored over longtime contender, Alexander Gustafsson last June. That victory returned “Lionheart” to the win column, after he lost via decision to champion Jon Jones last March.

Teixeira (30-7), meanwhile, has won three in a row. Most recently, in September, the veteran contender earned a split decision win over Nikita Krylov.
