Video: Shogun Rua & Anthony Smith Face-Off At UFC Hamburg Media Day

Spread the word!

Former UFC light heavyweight champion Mauricio “Shogun” Rua and Anthony Smith will headline UFC Hamburg this Sunday (July 22, 2018) on FOX Sports 1 from the¬†Barclaycard Arena in Hamburg, Germany.

To cap off the UFC Hamburg media day earlier today (Fri. July 20, 2018), Shogun and “Lionheart” faced-off just days before they lock horns inside the Octagon.

Check out the video below:

The 36-year-old Rua has looked rather impressive inside the cage lately. He’s currently on a three fight win-streak over names such as Antonio Rogerio Nogueira, Corey Anderson and Gian Villante. With a potential win over Smith, the Brazilian is campaigning hard for a shot at UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier’s title.

Smith is currently on the rise in his UFC career. After having a three fight win-streak snapped by Thiago Santos in February, he bounced back with a hellacious first round finishing of former UFC 205-pound champ Rashad Evans in June at UFC 225. He now looks to add another former champion to his list of victims.
