UFC 301 video: Bruce Buffer announces wrong winner for ‘still undefeated’ Anthony Smith vs. Vitor Petrino

Bruce Buffer rarely messes up, but even he seemingly didn’t expect Anthony Smith to upset Vitor Petrino at UFC 301.

Despite being more than a 4-to-1 underdog on some sportsbooks, Smith needed just two minutes to submit Petrino and topple the Brazilian prospect from the ranks of the unbeaten. Afterward, Buffer announced the winner as “the still undefeated Vitor Petrino” — much to the amusement of Smith — before quickly correcting himself and giving the one-time title challenger his flowers.

Watch Buffer’s flub below, along with reaction from Smith and Daniel Cormier.

Smith, 35, has now won two of his past three bouts, sandwiching a split decision over Ryan Spann between a knockout loss to Khalil Rountree Jr.

Petrino, 26, snaps a four-fight win streak that kicked off his UFC career and had many hailing him as one of the top prospects at 205 pounds.

UFC 301 took place May 4 at the Farmasi Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Get full results here.
