The UFC will return to competition with a light heavyweight headliner featuring two title contenders.
“Lionheart,”31, looked lacklustre in a decision loss to champion Jon Jones at UFC 235, yet pulled off an impressive submission win over Alexander Gustafsson at UFC on ESPN+ 11 last June.

Teixeira, 40, continues to be the renaissance man. He has a three-fight win streak over some good opponents like Nikita Krylov and Ion Cutelaba. Smith is another younger and technical challenge, but Glover always has legendary trainer John Hackleman and The Pit in his corner.
