UFC Vegas 37: Anthony Smith vs. Ryan Spann fight card, start time, channel guide.
UFC Vegas 37 is set to go down on Saturday, Sept. 18, 2021, starting at 4:00 p.m. ET. The main card and preliminary card will both be shown exclusively on ESPN+. In the headliner, ranked light heavyweights Anthony Smith and Ryan Spann are set for war. Both fighters have had their ups and downs in the UFC, but a win here will surely set them up for success moving forward.
Smith comes into this fight on a two-win streak after beating Jimmy Crute and Devin Clark. Although Smith is not a gatekeeper, his ability to shut down the up-and-comers has been impressive recently. Smith’s newest challenge will be the always dangerous Spann. Holding a UFC record of 5-1, Spann originally earned his UFC contract during his second attempt on Dana White’s Contender Series. Spann will need to fight smart because Smith’s experience has been his greatest quality.
The co-main event features fellow light heavyweights Ion Cutelaba and Devin Clark. Unfortunately, Cutelaba has gone 0-2-1 in his last three fights. With that being said, his aggression and power give him a path to victory in any fight. On the other hand, Clark is coming off a tough loss to Smith after winning two in a row. Both fighters need this win, but only one can come out victorious.
Also, thirteen other intriguing fights will round out the fight card. The fights with the most potential include Christos Giagos vs. Arman Tsarukyan, Joaquin Buckley vs. Antonio Arroyo, Impa Kasanganay vs. Carlston Harris, and more. With fifteen fights in total, UFC Vegas 37 is the perfect event for the UFC to return with.
