ANALYSIS:

This is an 8* on Anthony Smith

The headliner for Wednesday’s UFC card in Jacksonville, Florida is a light heavyweight bout between Anthony Smith (32-14) and Glover Teixeira (30-7). Teixeira did go 3-0 in 2019, two of the wins coming by submission. But we’re siding with his opponent in this five-round affair between two veterans of the sport. Smith has won four of his last five bouts and last July saw him prevail by rear naked choke over Alexander Gustafsson. Just like Teixeira, he’s known as a finisher. He’s also knocked out Rashad Evans and “Shogun” Rua, two former champions of this division. Smith is nine years younger and Teixiera can’t hold off father time forever. Smith has won as an underdog several times in the past. As a favorite here, look for him to emerge victorious. This fight was originally going to take place last month before the sports world was turned upside down. It’ll be worth the wait for Smith.
