Anthony Smith vs. Ryan Spann was a one-sided fight.

The showdown served as the main event of the UFC Vegas 37 event on Saturday night (September 18, 2021) from Las Vegas, Nevada at the UFC Apex facility.

As seen in the fight, Smith wanted to put Spann away quickly. The former title contender dropped him twice and smashed him on the ground with strikes. Smith didn’t get it done with his strikes, but rather, ended up locking in a rear-naked choke for the win in the first round. 

They exchanged some words after the fight before they hugged it out. A very impressive win by Smith. 

This was an important contest for both guys. Smith came into this fight on a two-fight winning streak with a submission win over Devin Clark in November 2020 then a TKO win over Jimmy Crute at UFC 261. Before that, he got beat by decision by Aleksandar Rakicat the UFC On ESPN+ 33 event. On the flip side, Spann came into this fight with a 19-6 pro-MMA record and was fresh off a win over Misha Cirkunov in March 2021 by TKO. 

Let’s see how the fighters reacted to the outcome of this fight:
