Anthony Smith has accused ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone and poker player Dan Bilzerian of harassing his family during his light heavyweight title fight against Jon Jones at UFC 235.
Smith’s mother and wife, who were seated in the front row at UFC 235, were forcefully removed from their seats by Bilzerian and Cerrone moments before the bout started. That wasn’t it however as the controversial poker player allegedly started watching porn after he ended up sitting next to ‘Lionheart’s’ mother.
Anthony Smith On Cerrone And Bilzerian Harassing His Family
Speaking to Michael Bisping (as transcribed by LowKick MMA), Smith said that he was furious when he learned about the incident after the fight and wanted to tear Bilzerian’s head off.
“Dan Bilzerian and Donald Cerrone removed my mom and my wife from their seats while I’m getting ready to fight Jon Jones,” Smith said. “I was f***ing furious. If I had seen Dan Bilzerian … because I had found out about it right after I got to the back, and if I had seen him then, I would have f***ing torn his head off, I was so mad. They come and they wanna sit down and watch the fight, but they’re f***ing hammered.
“Like, just shithouse drunk. And so they tell them that those are their seats. My mom doesn’t know Dan Bilzerian or Donald Cerrone — my wife knows who Donald is, but my mother doesn’t know him — and [my mom] doesn’t know who this short, tight shirt, funky-ass hat-wearing jerk is. She just knows that these are her seats and she’s about to watch her son fight for a world title. Dan ends up being next to my mom, and then during the fight, is watching porn on his phone. During the fight he’s sitting there watching porn. And my mom’s super uncomfortable, like she’s not a … she’s weirded out. She’s a quiet lady, real shy. It was just a whole f***ing ordeal.”
Smith is currently riding a two fight winning streak, which he hopes to improve to three when he returns to the Octagon to face Magomed Ankalaev at UFC 277 on July 10th.
