UFC on ESPN+ 11 is headlined by a top-ranked light heavyweight clash between the division’s No. 2 contender Alexander Gustafsson and No. 4 contender Anthony Smith.

Both are fresh off losses to undisputed UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones. Gustafsson’s loss was by way of a third-round TKO in December, while Smith was beaten via a lopsided unanimous decision last March at UFC 235.

Gustafsson looked like the best version of himself prior to his last loss, when he defeated Glover Teixeira thanks to textbook boxing that culminated in a devastating fifth-round knockout back in May 2017.

Smith reeled off three consecutive finishes over Rashad Evans (KO, knee), Mauricio Rua (KO, elbow and punches) and Volkan Oezdemir (submission, rear-naked choke) in fewer than six months in 2018 before his loss to Jones.
