The UFC will make their long-awaited return to Germany next weekend with a Fight Night event that will be headlined by an important light heavyweight fight. Coming off of three straight wins, Mauricio Rua will be eyeing a light heavyweight title shot if he can get by late replacement Anthony Smith, who is stepping in for Volkan Oezdemir after he was moved to UFC 227.
The co-main event will also take place at 205 pounds, with former title challenger Glover Teixeira looking to get back on track against TUF winner Corey Anderson. The rest of the card is mostly made up of European fighters looking to establish themselves in the UFC or hold on to their current spots in the rankings.
In more recent news, KSW fighter David Zawada is in for Alan Jouban, and will meet Danny Roberts on the main card.
UFC Fight Night 134 takes place on Sunday, July 22nd in the Barclaycard Arena in Hamburg, Germany.
