UFC Light Heavyweight fighter Anthony “Lionheart” Smith has publicly expressed his opposition to COVID-19 vaccinations.
Smith’s decision comes after a personal tragedy, as his mother slipped into a coma two weeks after receiving the Pfizer booster shot and unfortunately did not recover. Additionally, Smith claims to have developed a blood clot shortly after receiving his COVID-19 vaccination.
On the podcast Believe You Me, Smith shared his personal experiences and concerns regarding the experimental mRNA COVID-19 vaccines in a discussion with Former UFC middleweight Champion Michael Bisping. They were also joined by Themba Gorimbo, who discussed his recent victory and upbringing in Africa.
During their conversation, Bisping and Smith explored the potential health risks associated with COVID-19 vaccines.
“He’s only a young man. Why do you think he had a heart attack?” asked Bisping.
“I don’t know. I mean, anytime there’s a young person that has any kind of heart problems or strokes or things like that, I kind of point in one direction,” said Smith, adding, “It just go straight to vaccinations every time.”
Smith revealed, “When my mom passed, right, she got sick immediately after getting her booster. She was fairly healthy, but she got sick immediately after that. So she got her booster and was in a coma in like two weeks.”
Smith also drew a connection between Pfizer’s recent acknowledgement of an elevated stroke risk in individuals over 60 who receive their final booster, and the unfortunate passing of his mother.
“It just doesn’t make any sense. Like that was really weird, right? And then recently Pfizer came out and said in people over 60 on their final booster, they had to come out and say that there was a higher risk of stroke. Well, that’s essentially what ended up happening to my mom,” Smith said.
Smith went on to mention the case of Damar Hamlin, a player from the Buffalo Bills, who collapsed on the field.
“I’ve always connected those two things. And then there’s just so many young people that end up being vaccinated that end up with heart problems. There’s that football player that kind of in the middle of that game last season that had a random heart issue in the middle of a football game. They just keep it so hush-hush because of course nobody wants to say that out loud. I don’t actually know, but that’s always been my hypothesis,” Smith said.
“I don’t have the data or the stats or anything like that, but I do know that the whole thing was absolute bullsh-t,” Smith added.
Based on his own personal experiences, Smith shared a concerning revelation regarding his health condition following his COVID vaccination.
After hearing about Smith’s experience, Bisping admitted that he had initially been in favor of the vaccine, but now he has doubts about its overall credibility.
“I admit I was all about it at the time. And now I think the whole thing is goddamn bullsh-t. I think the whole thing is bullsh-t,” Bisping said.
Like a lot of Americans, Smith shared that he had only taken the vaccine in order to keep his job.
“I did it to keep my Job,” Smith said.
“Well, so did I, ESPN,” Bisping replied.
Listen to the interview via The Gateway Pundit on Rumble:
There is a growing number of athletes who are expressing their opposition to the mandatory COVID vaccine due to the risks.

“Anti-vaxxer, by the way, I must say, vaccines are bad, but you try to force me to tell me to get a shove a needle my ass to leave the country? F-ck you guys,” Strickland said.
