However, Smith is known for appearing on the Reality TV series The Ultimate Fighter and had one of biggest highlight reel comeback knockouts with his bout with Pete Sell. Smith has proven that he has one punch KO power and prime time MMA fans will be looking to put some money on the line to profit on that KO power.
