He forces the fight against the fence and is looking for a takedown. Smiths forces the head of Evans down and lands a big knee! Evans is down and out! Great performance by Smith. Evans should have seen that knee coming and this fight just didn’t make a ton of sense for him. Smith was too big, and the finishing sequence was violent.
