Johnson Drops Shogun In Hamburg
The UFC returns to Germany, with UFC Fight Night Hamburg. Mauricio Rua looked to jump into a title shot against Daniel Cormier, but gets sent to the back of the line after Anthony Johnson would turn the lights out on the “Shogun” in the very first round.
Shogun would be the aggressor when the bell rang, but Johnson would begin to load up on strikes and set up a devastating leg kick to the temple of Rua. “Shogun” would be pounced on by Johnson and set the table for a huge finishing elbow sending Rua to the ground.
