Smith is the #4 ranked contender in the division, with an active record of 31-14 despite being only 31 years of age. He lost a title shot to Jon “Bones” Jones in 2019 by decision in his only attempt at becoming a champion. He has won seven of his last nine fights however, and has been in the UFC since 2013.

Teixeira is now 40 years old while also the #8 ranked light heavyweight in UFC. He’s 30-7 in an underrated career, and also has lost to Jones for the gold, but did so six years ago.
