Smith thinks that a win against Rua could get him a title shot against Cormier.

“If he thinks Shogun is the next guy, and I beat him, then I think rightfully, he gave me the opportunity to put my hand up. I think that he did that for me, and I don’t even know if he realizes that. [Cormier] isn’t excited about the [Alexander] Gustafsson fight, whether it’s a money thing or a new matchup,” he said. “I think I’m a fresh face, and that’s an exciting matchup for the fans, me versus ‘DC.’ But I haven’t even thought about that right now,” Smith said.

Smith will be heading into the fight with Rua on the back of his victory against Rashad Evans.
