Forrest Griffin breaks down Shogun vs Smith


Griffin vs Rua, UFC 76, Sep 21, 2007Former light heavyweight champion and UFC Hall of Famer Forrest Griffin stood across the Octagon from Mauricio Rua on two occasions starting back in 2007. With firsthand experience of what Shogun brings to the table, who better to ask about how he sees the main event of Fight Night Hamburg going down?

"Let's find out where Anthony Smith really falls in this division. He's got great striking. Shogun? Obviously great striking...he wants to punch, kick, knee. Anthony Smith will be more than game to do those things."
