Man Breaks Into Anthony Smith’s House, It Doesn’t End Well


Anthony Smith is back in action later this month at UFC Fight Night Lincoln, facing Glover Teixeira in the main event of the show.

This past Sunday Night, a man broke into Smith’s home, and Smith would leap into action after Smith’s wife alerted him to the home invasion.

"I didn't know what he had," Smith said to ESPN. "Typically people don't break into your house in the middle of the night for any good reasons. I'm expecting that I'm gonna hear a gunshot or he's gonna stab me. Like he's got something. I figure I've got about two minutes before whatever he's got takes me out."

Smith also told ESPN that his family was hidden in the bathroom while the confrontation went down with the home invader.

The UFC star admits that he attacked the invader with everything in the arsenal, but the intruder kept trying to fight back.

"No normal human is able to fight like that," Smith said. "I'm by no means the baddest dude on the planet. But he's a regular Joe and I had a hard time dealing with him. And he took everything that I gave him -- every punch, every knee, every elbow. He took every single one of them and kept fighting me."

Authorities would eventually arrive and arrest Luke Haberman, but the damage was already done to the invader by Smith, as Smith’s computer room had blood all over it and Haberman’s face was cut up, with some swelling as well.

Haberman has been charged with first-degree criminal trespass, which is a misdemeanor in the state of Nebraska.
