In its second show in just five days, the UFC came through with another night of fights from the VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Florida.

Glover Teixeira, 40, extended his winning streak to four with a punishing win over Anthony Smith, who told his corner his teeth were falling out after the fourth round. Once the fifth round began, there was no fight left in Smith and Teixeira took advantage of his heavily damaged opponent.

In the co-main event, Ovince “OSP” Saint Preux’s experiment at heavyweight ended in a loss as the Haitian American gave up a split decision to Ben Rothwell. In his post-fight interview with Daniel Cormier, Rothwell said he’d like to face Aleksei Oleinik in his next bout. OSP moves to 24-14 in his career while Rothwell improves to 38-12.
