The main event of UFC Fight Night: Smith vs Teixeira was a highly entertaining one. On this card, former title challenger Anthony Smith took on the veteran Glover Teixeira.

In this fight, the 40-year old put a one-sided beating on the Omaha native throughout the fight. From the second round onwards, Glover Teixeira set the tempo of the fight by landing huge uppercuts and looping right hands. The continuous blows caused swelling around Smith’s eye.

In the third round, Glover Teixeira landed a hard uppercut that dropped Smith. The Brazilian then went for the ground and pound and attempted to submit Smith, but the American somehow survived the round.

Referee Jason Herzog was generous enough and let Smith continue. In the third round, as Teixeira was dishing put vicious ground and pound, he apologized to Smith.

Teixeira: “Sorry, Anthony, it’s part of the job.”

Smith: “What?”

Teixeira: “Sorry. Part of the job.”

Smith: Yeah. “It is what it is.”

The beating then continued from fourth till 64-seconds into the fifth round, when Jason Harzog had seen enough and intervened to stop the fight. This has been a terrific late surge for the aging Brazilian.  To put it into perspective as to how vicious the beating was, Smith out-landed Teixeira  73-44 in the first two rounds. But the Brazilian bounced back to out-land Smith by 94-13 in the remainder of the fight.

He had an amazing 2019, where he defeated Karl Robertson, Ion Cutelaba, and Nikita Krylov. A stoppage win over a top contender like Anthony Smith who won full five-rounds with Jon Jones is a terrific feat. This even puts him in the mix for the title contention.

A title shot for Glover Teixeira?

Teixeira was ecstatic after the fight and told Daniel Cormier that he is now in the mix for another title run.

Like Rocky Balboa says, it’s not how hard you hit. It’s how hard you get hit and keep coming forward,” Teixeira said after beating Smith. “That’s what I’m about, baby.”

You’ve got to open your mind,” Teixeira said. “You’ve got to go out there and look for help when things start going wrong, and that’s what I did. And here I am, baby. Get ready for another run at that title.”
