    The extent of Anthony Smith’s hand injury is so severe that the top light heavyweight contender will require surgery to fix it.

    Smith, who submitted three-time light heavyweight title challenger Alexander Gustafsson in the UFC Fight Night 153 main event, broke his hand early in the fight and will undergo surgery on Wednesday.

    Prior to the bout, Smith said he want some time off and, speaking to MMA Fighting’s Damon Martin in a recent interview, ‘Lionheart’ said he expects to be on the sidelines for the next six months, which could mean we won’t see the 30-year-old back in the Octagon until the new year.

    All the best to him when he has surgery
    He’s a decent guy from the interviews I’ve heard and gets no respect when fighting the higher levels

    I’m a fan

    Agreed. Was a fan before the Jones fight, gained even more respect the way he handled himself during thr fight and after the illegal blow. Seems as genuine as it gets with a good head on his shoulders - he'll go far with ot without fighting - top man
