Anthony Smith vs. Ryan Spann headlines this weekend's Fight Night ahead of the upcoming UFC 266.

Smith is a former light heavyweight title challenger having taken on and lost to Jon Jones in 2019. While he lost that match-up, his 51 career bouts to date and 36 wins give him plenty of experience to remain a threat to all but the very best.

He was able to defeat Jimmy Cruite at UFC 261 in April and looks to maintain his momentum in Las Vegas when he faces Spann.

Spann last took on Misha Cirkunov in March and it would be something of an upset if he were able to defeat Smith this weekend.
