Anthony Smith aided Jamahal Hill in securing the UFC championship, aware of their inevitable bout in the future

Anthony Smith was set to face Jamahal Hill in a UFC light heavyweight title fight, but Hill got the call to fight Glover Teixeira instead, leaving Smith without a match. However, Hill contacted Smith for training help ahead of the Teixeira fight.

Despite the potential opportunity Smith had lost, he accepted the invite to train Hill and gave him intimate details and insights into Teixeira, which he felt guilty about, but nonetheless complemented Hill’s eventual victory.
