Smith, No. 12 in the latest USA TODAY Sports/MMA Junkie light heavyweight rankings, stepped into the card on 17 days’ notice after his training partner Hill withdrew due to injury. It’s another quick return and short notice bout for “Lionheart,” who scored a two-minute finish of Vitor Petrino at UFC 301 in May.

No. 15-ranked Ulberg originally stepped in as a replacement for Rountree against Hill, but then he was the one accepting a new opponent in Smith. The striking specialist is riding a six-fight winning streak, including a 12-second knockout of Alonzo Menifield at UFC on ESPN 56 in May.
