Black belt Mauricio “Shogun” Rua (20w, 5l) and Dan Henderson will be facing off this Saturday, November 19, in the UFC 139 main event in San José, California, and the former Pride FC and UFC champion wants to be the first person ever to put Hendo’s lights out.
“I hope to be the first person ever to knock Dan out. He’s a talented and experienced fighter – he’s fought a lot of tough guys, has been hit a lot of times but was never knocked out, but I’m confident and have faith in my skills. I’m going out there to do my best and I hope to break the spell [on his chin],” said Shogun.
What do you thing, dear reader; will “Shogun” be the guy to finally knock Hendo out? Or will the Brazilian fall prey to Dan’s dreaded right hook?
