BIOGRAPHY

Anthony Smith, born on July 26th 1989, is an American mixed martial artist who currently competes in the light heavyweight division of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). He has a professional record of 33 wins (19 by knockout/submission) and 18 losses.

Smith began his martial arts career at age 8 when he took up Karate, eventually earning a blue belt. In 2006 he started training in Jiu Jitsu and Muay Thai. After high school, Smith served in the United States Navy as an Aviation Electrician’s Mate Third Class from 2007-2009. During this time his love for combat sports deepened; he trained Jiu Jitsu whenever possible during deployments and taught wrestling classes to Navy personnel while stationed in Japan.

After leaving the military Anthony Smith returned home to Nebraska where he worked odd jobs while competing as an amateur mixed martial artist with hopes of one day making it professionally. His hard work paid off as he made his professional debut at Battlefield Fight League 14: Unfinished Business on March 27th 2010 where he won via first round submission due to rear naked choke against Chris Lappenbusch thus beginning his professional MMA career with a bang!

By 2011 Anthony had accrued nine victories and was able to make enough money from fighting that it became his full-time job. This allowed Anthony to fully commit himself towards perfecting the craft of Mixed Martial Arts which would be essential for success later down the road when fighting against more veteran opponents such as future UFC middleweight champion Robert Whittaker whom Smith defeated via split decision back at XFC 24: Collision Course on October 12th 2012!
In June 2013 Jackson’s MMA Series brought him into its team after they observed how much improvement Smith has made since turning pro five years prior – this proved beneficial for both parties as not only did their partnership result in multiple titles (King Of The Cage Light Heavyweight Champion & Legacy FC Middleweight Champion) but also saw Anthony winning all but two fights throughout 2014-2016 making him strong contender within regional circuits across America!

Finally everything changed when Bellator offered him a contract which would allow him take part inside their cage – however due to some contract issues between Bellator & fighter’s management team nothing came out from this so instead UFC decided to swoop Anthony away by signing him mid 2017 leading up until fight night 134 Hamburg event where we witnessed “Lionheart” earn yet another win over German favorite Corey Anderson via TKO victory just barely under four minutes into second round! Since then there have been many highlights including decisive KO/TKO victories over former champions Rashad Evans & Mauricio Rua but most notably controversial draw match versus Jon Jones at UFC 235 event back March 2019 – which earned both fighters “Fight Of The Night” honors despite no clear winner emerging at end fight proving once again why world should never count Lionheart out regardless odds stacked against them because anything can happen when stepping inside octagon alongside “The Panther”!!
