Shogun Rua vs Dan Henderson 2 Rumored for March Event
What many consider to be one of the greatest MMA bouts of all time may be happening again. According to Tatame, Dan Henderson and Mauricio Rua will fight for a second time. The bout is rumored to be the headliner of a UFC card in Natal, Brazil, which takes place in March. Their first fight, a back-and-forth barn-burner, resulted in a unanimous decision win for Henderson.
The rematch represents a must-win for Henderson, who is 0-3 in his last 3, most recently being stopped by strikes for the first time in his career by Vitor Belfort. Meanwhile, “Shogun” looks to ride the momentum he gained from an impressive first-round knock out over James Te-Huna. Before that, Rua suffered losses to Chael Sonnen and Alexander Gustafsson.
