ITS ALREADY FIGHT NIGHT FOLKS! 4 days ago, we had an epic PPV event in an empty arena in Jacksonville, FL. Once again, we are back in Jacksonville for a Wednesday night card, bonkers. While this certainly is no PPV level card, its got some decent fights on it, albeit not the biggest names, but some very world class fighters nonetheless.
The Main Event is a Light Heavyweight bout between #4 ranked Anthony Smith and #8 Glover Teixeira. Now this is a difficult fight to call. I think Anthony Smith should definitely be favored, and he will probably pull this one off against a 40 year old Teixeira whom is hanging onto his extremely long career. He has a 30-7 record and has been fighting since 2002. Smith, no stranger to tough matchups in this division, is looking to regain a win streak and climb back up the ladder to another Light Heavyweight title shot against Jon Jones. Either way, this fight is probably going to be a finish. I have Anthony Smith by 3rd TKO. Smith is a little more versatile, a little better at making adjustments to his opponents midfight. And the youth on his side is no small thing.
Other than that, i like OSP, Drew Dober, and Ricky Simon tonight.
Its Fight night folks, lets get after it!!! Woo!
