With New Motivation, Shogun Wants K.O. Over Hendo This Weekend

“I have always been with great coaches, but I lacked motivation. With the training here in São Paulo my motivation raised again because I’m just another fighter. In Curitiba, the coaches were hired by me and they were focusing only on me. Now, here in São Paulo, I have good athletes that help me like Demian Maia and Daniel Sarafian.”

“I’m feeling better this time because I know very well his style of fighting. It’s easier now to impose my rhythm of fight. I will always look for the KO whether I’m winning or not. If I have de opportunity, I will knock him out in the first round.”

Former UFC light-heavyweight champion, Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua, rececently told the UFC Brazil crew that his mind frame is back and he’s ready for a war this weekend against Dan Henderson.

The two MMA legends fought in a ‘Fight of the Year’ earning war back in 2011 and we can expect much of the same this Sunday.
