Fans will be delighted to hear that Mauricio “Shogun” Rua is back on the path of recovery since undergoing surgery to repair a damaged ligament in his left knee. In a feature with Brazilian publication, Tatame, Shogun explains that he is now able to walk and he is looking forward to start training again.
When asked about an exact return date and who might his next opponent be Shogun states,
“In truth I still do not have an official date, but I predict February. Truthfully, I do not choose my opponents, but if it were a recognized name it would be better. A Tito Ortiz or Chuck Liddell, a popular name would be better. But for now I am focusing on getting back to training.”
