Anthony Smith has been in the UFC for as long as one can remember. The former middleweight contender currently competes in the UFC’s light-heavyweight division. He has competed in over 50 professional MMA bouts, and has cemented his legacy as one of the greatest mixed martial artist of all time. Despite the popularity, very little is known about Smith’s personal life who likes to keep his private life away from the glitz and glamour of social media. 

Fondly called the “Lionheart” for his resilience and toughness inside the cage, the former light-heavyweight title challenger continues to reign at the top of the UFC’s light-heavyweight division. With wins over the likes of Mauricio Rua, Rashad Evans, Hector Lombard, Volkan Oezdemir, Josh Neer, among others, Smith has cemented his position as one of the greatest mixed martial artist of all time.

Anthony Smith was raised by his single mother, and did not get the love of a father growing up. He dropped out of his senior year of college, and started working part-time. Even during his UFC run, Smith found his major source of income inworking as a concrete finisher. 

Lionheart has already left a legacy behind him, and it will be interesting to see what lies ahead of his UFC career as he goes forward in his MMA career. Is there a chance that Anthony Smith can become the UFC’s light-heavyweight champion? Do let us know in the comments section.
