Since July features several UFC cards and several big scraps, the fact “Shogun” Rua is set to rematch Antonio Rogerio Nogueira in a few weeks time has gotten lost in the mix.
The light-heavyweights will throw down on August 1st at UFC 190, in what is a rematch of their epic, 2005 battle for PRIDE. Rua won the bout via unanimous decision.
Now sure, some will point out that neither one of these guys is knocking on the door for a title shot these days, but they are two of Brazil’s biggest and most accomplished fighters.
In advance of the bout, the UFC has posted Rua’s memorable, knockout win over Chuck Liddell in 2009. “Shogun” went on to win the light-heavyweight belt two fights later.
You can watch the fight below.
UFC 190 will go down in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
