Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Sat., Sept. 18, 2021, with an exciting match up in the Light Heavyweight division, as No. 6-ranked contender, Anthony Smith, faces off with No. 11-seeded contemporary, Ryan Spann. In UFC Vegas 37’s co-main event, fellow 205-pound veterans Ion Cutelaba and Devin Clark aim to steal the show.  

Don’t miss a single second of face-punching action!

Gastelum (16-7, 1 NC) was one victory away from capturing the interim middleweight strap against Israel Adesanya at UFC 236 back in early 2019. Instead, the former welterweight came up short by way of split decision — part of a dreadful 1-4 streak that includes losses to Darren Till and Robert Whittaker.

As for Cannonier (13-5), he’s also looking to rebound from a decision loss to Whittaker, one that snapped a three-fight win streak dating back to May 2019. “The Killa Gorilla” — a former heavyweight — is one of the hardest punchers at 185 pounds and will look to keep his spot in the Top 5 by vanquishing Gastelum.

Nothing left to do now except fight.
