Anthony Smith said it best after UFC Vegas 15.
Line them up, and I’ll keep knocking them down.
Smith stepped into the main event role Saturday night, earning a submission victory in the first round over Devin Clark. The bout aired live on ESPN from the UFC Apex in Las Vegas.
After Curtis Blaydes tested positive for COVID-19, his planned main event with Derrick Lewis was scratched. UFC officials elevated Smith-Clark from the co-main to the new headliner.
And Smith delivered.
The former UFC light heavyweight title contender had no trouble with Clark, scoring the quick submission win.
