As part of a promotional tour for their upcoming fight, Dan Henderson and Mauricio “Shogun” Rua took some pictures on a beach in Natal, Brazil. The two will throw down again during the headlining bout of UFC Fight Night 38, which takes place on March 23rd, in the aforementioned Natal. The card also features notable fighters such as Scott Jorgensen, Rony Jason, Jussier Formiga, and Gleison Tibau.  The first fight between ‘Shogun’ and ‘Hendo’ was widely regarded as one of the best fights in UFC history, with back and forth action throughout five rounds ultimately resulting in a unanimous decision win for Henderson.

The fight is most likely a must-win for Henderson (29-11, 6-5 UFC), who is coming off of three straight losses in the UFC. While his fights against Rashad Evans and Lyoto Machida were both very close split-decision losses, his most recent fight was a brutal first round KO from Vitor Belfort. Rua (22-8, 6-6 UFC), on the other hand, looks to ride the momentum that he gained with a first round KO  win over James Te-Huna in December.
