Anthony Smith got Devin Clark to submit under a triangle choke at 2:34 of the first round to win the main event at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.

The light-heavyweight battle topped the bill after a scheduled heavyweight bout between Curtis Blaydes and Derrick Lewis was canceled Friday. Blaydes reportedly tested positive for COVID-19.


Smith, a 32-year-old Texas native, improved to 34-16 by earning his first win in three fights this year. He lost to Glover Teixeira in May and Aleksandar Rakic in August.

Clark, a 30-year-old South Dakota native, fell to 2-1 on the year after victories over Dequan Townsend in February and Alonzo Menifield in June. He is 12-5-0 overall.


On the undercard, 28-year-old Floridian Miguel Baeza won by submission over Japan’s Takashi Sato on an arm triangle at 4:28 of the second round of a welterweight match. Baeza improved to 10-0 with his second win of 2020, while Sato (16-4) slipped to 1-1 this year.

In a battle of U.S. heavyweights, Josh Parisian (13-4) won a unanimous decision over Parker Porter (11-6).
