UFC Anthony Smith details bloody fight with home invader


Anthony Smith fought Jon Jones for the UFC Lightweight Championship, but has never known anything as difficult as the time he found a strange man in his house.

Smith, 31, detailed the nightmarish run-in in a new interview with ESPN’S Ariel Helwani. The incident occurred in the wee hours of Sunday morning around 4 am in Omaha. Smith was awakened by his wife, who informed her husband that she had heard “a man’s voice scream at the top of his lungs”. The light weight turned the corner outside his room and saw Luke Haberman.

“I didn’t know what he had,” said Smith. “People usually don’t break into your house in the middle of the night for good reasons. I expect me to hear a shot or to be stabbed in my body. As if he had something. I guess I have about two minutes before everything he has brings me out. ”

Smith’s wife rounded up the children and kept them safe in a room. Smith, meanwhile, struggled with the intruder.
