Anthony Smith has previously said that he will break two-time title challenger Alexander Gustafsson and assured that he has no beef with him.
“I know what I’m going to do. I don’t even care if he knows it. I’m going to march across the cage and get in his face and swing hammers, and if he gets too close, I’m going to drag him to the ground and punch him wherever I can. That’s it. There’s no secret to it.”
Meanwhile, Alexander Gustafsson will have the hometown advantage and will have the crowd at his disposal. He will be looking forward to repeating his 2017 performance against Glover Texiera when he battered the Brazilian and knocked him out in his hometown of Stockholm.
