Louis Smolka returns at UFC Beijing on Nov. 24

MMA: UFC 207-Borg vs Smolka Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

How do you get a second chance in UFC?

Do like Louis Smolka, and a few others, by winning a bunch of fights on the regional and international circuits — and look good while doing it. Since parting ways with UFC roughly one year back, “Da Last Samurai” went on a three-fight tear with three finishes.

That was enough to earn him a call back for the upcoming UFC Fight Night 141 mixed martial arts (MMA) event, according to James Lynch, taking place Sat., Nov. 24, 2018 inside Cadillac Arena in Beijing, China, where Smolka faces Tibetan bantamweight prospect Sumudaerji, reports MMA Junkie.

Sumudaerji (10-2) has never been to a decision in 12 pro fights.

After jumping out to an 11-1 start, Smolka left UFC in the wake of four straight losses. While the final three were decisions, “Da Last Samurai” may not get the same amount of leeway the second time around, especially with the expected influx of flyweight fighters.
