The UFC will continue to push forward with UFC on ESPN 9 this Wednesday night.
In the main event, Anthony Smith meets fellow former UFC title contender Glover Teixeira. The card airs live on ESPN from the VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Florida.
Smith, who grew up in Nebraska City, Nebraska, has been an MMA Midwest staple for years.
After challenging Jon Jones for the UFC light heavyweight title at UFC 235 in 2019, he finished off the year with a fourth round submission victory over Alexander Gustafsson.
