Former UFC light heavyweight champion Mauricio "Shogun" Rua suffered a devastating first round knockout loss Sunday in the main event of UFC Fight Night 134. Anthony Smith, who replaced Volkan Oezdemir in the main event from Hamburg, Germany, made his own claim to being a top contender at 205 pounds with the win.
In the co-main event, Corey Anderson scored the biggest win of his career, as he replaced Ilir Latifi and bested one-time title challenger Glover Teixeira. Smith and Manny Bermudez each were awarded "Performance of the Night" bonuses, with Danny Roberts and David Zawada claiming "Fight of the Night."
