I will never forget Randy Smith's words back in 2008, immediately following a knockout loss. He told me, "What doesn't kill you makes you stronger." In the years since, Randy has backed up those words, and his efforts have now earned him a shot at former UFC champion Tim Sylvia.
Smith will be fighting Sylvia on June 16 at New England Fights in Lewiston, Maine. If Tim thinks he's got an easy fight in front of him, he's got another thing coming. The Wolf is far better than his record, and he brings a lot of firepower into the cage with him. I would not be surprised at all if Randy shocks the fight world by beating the former UFC champ.
Randy is coming off a loss to the UFC's Tom DeBlass via heelhook. But Tim Sylvia is more of a bomber than a submission artist, so this fight is sure to be fireworks for as long as it lasts. For more info about this card, check out the NEF website.
Good luck, Randy "The Wolf" Smith!
