UFC Fight Night 138 Results & Recap
The UFC light heavyweight division has been a little on the quiet side for quite some time, but things might be starting to get interesting again. Jon Jones is set to return before the year ends and the latest UFC Fight Night which took place in Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada last night saw Anthony Smith and Misha Cirkunov emerge with impressive wins.
Smith especially has improved his position in the UFC rankings with his win over the number 2 ranked Oezdemir and is now out of nowhere on the verge of a title shot.
Cirkunov winning wasn’t a surprise, but the manner of his victory was. Cirkunov and Smith will both move up considerably when the new UFC rankings are released later this week.
