For the second time in the course of a few nights, the UFC put fights on. And they produced a great one in Wednesday’s main event, with Glover Teixeira ultimately topping Anthony Smith in what many can only call ‘dominant fashion.’
However, it wasn’t always that easy for Teixeira. Smith had started the first two rounds very well and seemed on course, potentially, for a victory. But Teixeira had other plans and turned the tide in the third round by dropping Smith. In the fourth, Teixeira kept hitting so hard that Smith could no longer keep his mouthpiece in. He persisted until the fifth round, though, where Teixeira finally knocked him out, winning the bout. Teixeira came into the fight as the ninth ranked light heavyweight, while Smith was #5.
