Shogun Rua comments in an interview with Yahoo Sports.

Shogun faces Brandon Vera in his next bout at UFC on Fox: Shogun vs. Vera and with an impressive victory he could find himself back at the front of line for a title shot.

Back at UFC 128 in March 2011 Shogun attempted to defend his Light-Heavyweight Title against Jon Jones unsuccessfully. Rua was dominated by Jones before being finished in the third round however Shogun now thinks the amount of video and information on Jones gives him a chance of defeating him in a rematch.

“That’s the fight I want. I want my title back. I think he is much easier to study Jon Jones now… last time the guy was a brand new style in the UFC. Now we’ve seen him fight other guys and have more information what he’s going to do in the Octagon. I am working towards beating him in a rematch.”
