Usually when we hear Chael Sonnen say he’s mad it seems like a promo. This is different. The damage that Anthony Smith took from Glover Teixeira at last night’s Fight Night was very hard to watch. It’s great that people are praising his toughness and grit but it was so bad that he lost teeth. His face was battered and he was thoroughly exhausted well before the referee finally stepped in to save him in the fifth round. Anthony’s corner arguably should have stopped the fight after the third or fourth round but instead they chose to send him out in the 5th and that is what set Chael Sonnen off. This is definitely worth a listen.

It was particularly brutal to watch. In the main event of Fight Night: Smith vs Teixeira We saw Glover Teixeira absolutely maul Anthony Smith. Mercifully the referee called a stopped to the action in round number five and saved Smith from further beatings. After the fight Smith could be heard saying that his teeth were falling out. If that doesn’t tell you how bad it was nothing will. Here is what Glover said in The Octagon after the impressive finish.
Michael Johnson looked very composed tonight at UFC Fight Night: Smith vs Teixeira but was unable to escape a leg lock expertly executed by Thiago Moises.
