This weekend Dan Henderson will take on Mauricio Rua in a rematch following their five round war at UFC 139. The fight is one of the most anticipated rematches in MMA history as the first meeting was one of the most exciting clashes of all time and subsequently earned both men “Fight of the Year” honours.
In the first fight, back in 2011, Henderson took home a unanimous decision win after five rounds of back-and-forth action which saw both men nearly finish their opponent. “Hendo” did control the first three rounds but “Shogun” came back hard in the fourth and fifth. Overall, the fight was deadly close and could have gone either way.
In preparation for the main event on Sunday, the UFC have released the full first fight between Rua and Henderson, which went down as an instant classic. Check out the video below courtesy of the UFC:
