Earns win after missing weight
December 5, 2020
Smolka defeated Jose Quinonez via TKO (punches) at 2:15 of Round 2 at UFC on ESPN 19 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
It was an excellent comeback victory for Smolka that is severely dampened by the fact he missed weight by three pounds Friday. This fight didn't start well for the 29-year-old Hawaiian. He looked a step slow on the feet throughout the course of Round 1, constantly getting off second in all the striking exchanges between the two men. Yet early in Round 2, Smolka was able to grab a hold of Quinonez, quickly flatten him out, and finish him with unanswered punches to the side of the head. It was a good stoppage from referee Jason Herzog. Smolka is one of the most inconsistent fighters in the company, which he openly admits, but he does have legitimate skills. Let's see if this strong victory is the start of a streak for him.
