Anthony Smith is Stepping in to Fight Jimmy Crute
By FCF Staff
Crute was scheduled to fight Johnny Walker on March 27th. But according to a report from ESPN, Walker has withdrawn from the fight due to an injury.
Smith (34-16) has agreed to step in to fight Crute (12-1), but the bout will now take place on April 24th.
‘Lionheart’ is coming off a submission win over Devin Clark in November, which snapped Smith’s two-fight losing skid. Smith has gone 2-3 in his last 5 fights.
Crute knocked out Modestas Bukauskas in his last outing, which took place in October. ‘The Brute’ is 4-1 in his last 5 bouts.
A location for the April 24th UFC card has yet to be announced.
