Anthony Smith has giant, mutant head in UFC Lincoln poster

Anthony Smith’s head is so large it looks like it was punched by Weili Zhang for five rounds.

Admittedly, I don’t know anything about graphic design, nor do I claim to be some sort of art expert, but I do know a crappy fight poster when I see one. If the promotion wanted me to watch Attack of the 50-Foot Eyesores instead of UFC Lincoln, then I would say “mission accomplished.”

Why does Smith have such a gigantic dome?

“Lionheart” collides with light heavyweight veteran Glover Teixeira in the upcoming UFC Fight Night 173 main event on Sat., April 25, 2020, live on ESPN+ from inside Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln, Nebraska.

Smith (33-14) has not competed since his fourth-round submission win over Alexander Gustafsson at UFC Stockholm last June, thanks to a pesky hand injury that required surgery. As for Teixeira (30-7), he’s captured three straight wins with two finishes dating back to summer 2018.

Surely these two warriors deserve better than this.
