UFC 198: Shogun Rua-Corey Anderson Set

ufc 198

Corey Anderson will have his stiffest test to date, as he meets Mauricio “Shogun” Rua in Brazil at UFC 198.

The light heavyweight contest was added to the May 14 docket by officials, joining Fabricio Werdum vs. Stipe Miocic for the heavyweight title, Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza vs. Vitor Belfort and Matt Brown vs. Demian Maia.

Rua (23-10) was on track to return in April vs. Rashad Evans in a meeting of ex-champions, but when doctors and officials saw a scan of his knee, he was replaced by Glover Teixeira.

Anderson (8-1) has won five of his six UFC bouts, including a victory over Matt Van Buren to become The Ultimate Fighter winner in 2014.
