Devonte “King Kage” Smith is a lightweight fighter in the UFC. He is a must-watch fighter. Smith holds a 100% rate with nine knockouts and one submission.

Smith compiled a 7-1 record before getting the call to compete on season two of “Dana White’s Contender Series.” He fought Joe Lowry for a shot at a UFC contract. Smith knocked out Lowry in the first round with elbows and secured a contract.

Smith would make his UFC debut three months later at UFC Fight Night: Korean Zombie vs. Rodríguez against Julian Erosa. ‘King Kage’ won in 46 seconds.

Smith is coming off his first UFC loss, which occurred at UFC 241. Shortly after his loss, he tore his Achilles tendon in practice. While being out of action recovering, Smith has been working on his clothing line “Ten Toes” or (10Toes).

“Tentoes is a clothing brand that I’m building from the bottom. I’m still working out the kinks with designs but it is cool clothes that fighters can relate to,” Smith said about his clothing line.

Smith returns to action for the first time in over a year against Alex da Silva Coelho on February 6, 2021.
