  • Curtis Blaydes vs. Derrick Lewis UFC Fight Night main event canceled

The main event at UFC Las Vegas 15 is canceled a day before the scheduled fight, ESPN's Ariel Helwani first reported. Former title challenger and current ESPN analyst Anthony Smith is expected to take on rising contender Devin Clark in the new main event.

"I'm not going anywhere", Smith said in his postfight interview.

Smith (33-16 MMA) will enter tonight's UFC Vegas 15 headliner on a two-fight losing skid, his latest being a unanimous decision setback to Aleksandar Rakić.

Clark looked to land big punches at the start of the fight and went in for a takedown.

Smith-Clark was moved to the headlining slot and became a five-round contest.
