UFC On ESPN+: Smith Vs. Teixeira Live Coverage, Results

Welcome to our live coverage of UFC on ESPN+ featuring light heavyweight title contenders Anthony Smith and Glover Teixeira.

Welcome to FightLine’s live coverage of UFC on ESPN+: Smith vs. Teixeira from the VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Florida.

All of the action will stream live on ESPN+ with Anthony Smith taking on Glover Teixeira in the main event. The two former light heavyweight title contenders battle over five rounds. 

Along with Smith vs. Teixeira, Ben Rothwell takes on Ovince Saint Preux in a heavyweight contest.

Rounding out the main card will be Alexander Hernandez vs. Drew Dober in the lightweight division, Ricky Simon vs. Ray Borg at bantamweight, Andrei Arlovski vs. Philipe Lins in the heavyweight division and Michael Johnson vs. Thiago Moises at lightweight.

On the prelims, Sijara Eubanks battles Sarah Moras, Gabriel Benitez faces Omar Antonio Morales Ferrer, Hunter Azure takes on Brian Kelleher and Chase Sherman meets Isaac Villanueva.

The card needed some last-minute shuffling after a planned bout between Marvin Vettori and Karl Roberson was scratched. Roberson weighed in at 187.5 pounds, but Vettori agreed to fight. 

However, the bout was scrapped after Roberson was declared medically unfit to compete. The two nearly came to blows in the fighter hotel, which was caught on camera.

The action begins at 6 p.m. ET with the prelims, while the main card starts at 9 p.m. ET.
