UFC 198 Gets Shogun Rua vs. Corey Anderson

Former UFC light heavyweight champion Mauricio "Shogun" Rua will make his first start of 2016 in his hometown of Curitiba, Brazil, when he faces Corey Anderson at UFC 198 on May 14.

Currently on the mend from an injury that forced him from an April bout against Rashad Evans, Rua - whose last trip to the Octagon saw him defeat Rogerio Nogueira last August - will be ready to go for his matchup with Anderson, a former Ultimate Fighter winner who has won three straight in the Octagon.

In the UFC 198 main event, Fabricio Werdum defends his UFC heavyweight title against Stipe Miocic. In the co-main event, it's an All-Brazil battle as Vitor Belfort faces Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza.

In other UFC 198 news, the lightweight bout between Leonardo Santos and Evan Dunham has been moved to UFC 199, which takes place on June 4 at The Forum in Inglewood, California.
