Shogun Rua says he's "very happy" to re-unite with Rafael Cordeiro at Kings MMAPosted on July 21, 2011, 04:55 PM by Anton Gurevich
Former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Mauricio "Shogun" Rua discussed the reunion with his Chute Boxe coach Rafael Cordeiro and the new training camp at Kings MMA. Shogun will rematch Forrest Griffin at next month's UFC 134.
The previous encounter between two former UFC 205 Champions took place almost four years ago, at UFC 76: Knockout, ending via a third round Rear Naked Choke submission victory in favor of Forrest Griffin. The fight marked Rua's UFC debut, and was his first loss (not counting the TKO against Mark Coleman) after four years of domination in PRIDE.
