Watch: Anthony Smith submits Vitor Petrino in Round 1

Vitor Petrino and Anthony Smith will clashed on Saturday as part of the UFC 301 main card at the Farmasi Arena in Rio de Janeiro.

Smith, aged 35, has been encountering difficulties lately. The former Light Heavyweight title contender has suffered three losses in his last four bouts, experiencing two stoppages within that period. While his split decision victory over Ryan Spann has somewhat stabilized his position in the rankings, it’s evident that Smith hasn’t displayed his best form in quite some time.

In contrast, Petrino presents an undefeated record (11-0) and is seen as a rising talent in the sport. At 26 years old, this Brazilian fighter has secured four consecutive victories, including two stoppages, marking an impressive start to his UFC journey. His success has propelled him to face tougher competition, making this matchup a significant step up for him.

Official result: Anthony Smith def. Vitor Petrino via sub (guillotine) (R1, 2:00)
