UFC 134 Results: Shogun Rua destroys Forrest GriffinPosted on August 27, 2011, 09:47 PM by Anton Gurevich
Reinvigorated Shogun looked focused, sharp, and determined to get himself back on track for a shot at the UFC Light Heavyweight title he lost to Jon Jones earlier this year. Rua landed perfect combinations, as Forrest Griffin failed to execute his gameplan and looked like his body is in Brazil, but the mind is in Las Vegas.
Finally, Mauricio Rua went toe-to-toe with Griffin, landing a strong right hand that knocked Griffin down to the canvas. Rua followed with a vicious ground and pound that saw Griffin's head bouncing off the canvas. The referee had no choice but to stop the action, awarding Shogun Rua one of the most important victories of his MMA career.
Shogun Rua improved his MMA record to 20-5.
