UFC warriors Anthony Smith had faced a number of frightening opponents in the Octagon, but of course none were as “frightening” as the fight he had found early Sunday morning.
Smith detailed his meeting with the house invaders which lasted more than five minutes until the police arrived during the interview with ESPN Ariel Helwani.
“I don’t know what he has,” Smith said. “Usually people don’t barge into your house in the middle of the night for good reasons. I wish I would hear gunfire or he would stab me. Like he had something. I think I had about two minutes before whatever he got brought me out.”
He also described the fight as “scary” and “one of the most difficult” he had ever experienced.
Raimondi noted Luke Haberman was accused of first-degree criminal offenses. It was a minor offense, and he must report to the court in the future.
Smith lives with his wife, mother-in-law and three daughters, and none of them was physically injured during the incident despite the attacker’s resistance.
“No normal human can fight like that,” Smith said. “I’m not at all the meanest guy on the planet. But he’s an ordinary Joe and I’m having a hard time dealing with him. And he’s taking everything I give him – every punch, every knee, every elbow. He takes every one of them and continues to fight me.”
Smith said he would still fight Glover Teixeira at UFC Lincoln on April 25, even though the event might be moved because of the coronavirus pandemic.
