With over 80 pro bouts combined between them, Smith (33-14) and Teixeira (30-7) remain in the thick of the UFC title picture and are in arm’s reach of a second crack at 205-pound champion Jon Jones. Smith rebounded from his loss to Jones with a fourth-round submission of Alexander Gustafsson, while Teixeira is currently riding a three-fight win streak.
