UFC 301 results: Anthony Smith taps Vitor Petrino in two minutes


Former UFC title challenger Anthony Smith isn’t done yet.

In the UFC 301 featured bout Saturday, Smith (38-19 MMA, 13-9 UFC) submitted Vitor Petrino (11-1 MMA, 4-1 UFC) with a guillotine choke two minutes into Round 1. The event took place at Farmasi Arena in Rio de Janeiro.

After a feeling out process on the feet at distance, the two light heavyweights engaged in the clinch. Smith grabbed a hold of Petrino’s neck with a guillotine attempt. Petrino elevated Smith and they crashed to the canvas. Smith’s grip seemed to deepen. Petrino strained before the panic tap came.

Smith, 35, rebounds from a knockout loss to Khalil Rountree and moves to 2-1 in his most recent three bouts. Petrino, 26, loses for the first time as a professional.
