The UFC is making a quick turnaround this week in Jacksonville, FL with another event at the VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena. And while it’s nowhere near as stacked an event as UFC 249, UFC Fight Night: Smith vs. Teixeira still has some rock solid action on offer. Anthony Smith will look to hold his place as a top contender against longtime veteran and former title challenger Glover Teixeira in the main event. In the co-main, Ovince St. Preux takes his first leap to heavyweight to fight Ben Rothwell. Throw some Alexander Hernandez vs. Drew Dober and some Ricky Simon vs. Ray Borg in there and it should all make for a fun night.

We’re covering the whole card in one giant-sized episode this time around, so there’s no prelims Vivi.
