On the heels of a successful UFC 249 fight card on Saturday, the UFC returns with a rare Wednesday night UFC Jacksonville fight card. The event streams live on ESPN+ beginning at 6 p.m. ET.
In the main event, former UFC light heavyweight title contenders Anthony Smith and Glover Teixeira will meet at 205-pounds.
One fight was removed from the card earlier today as Karl Roberson was sent to the hospital following a missed weigh-in attempt yesterday. Roberson was released from the medical facility but his bout against Marvin Vettori was removed from the card.
