Video: Mike Goldberg and Joe Rogan preview UFC Fight Night 38: 'Shogun vs Henderson 2' on March 23 in Brazil


After 25 minutes of wall-to-wall action in their first go-round, Dan Henderson and Mauricio Rua will hook 'em up for a second time in Brazil, and UFC commentators Mike Goldberg and Joe Rogan are here to tell you all about it.

Don't blame it on Rio.

Despite getting his clock cleaned his last time out, Dan Henderson will return to Brazil as he headlines the promotion's upcoming UFC Fight Night 38 mixed martial arts (MMA) event in Natal, Brazil, rematching Mauricio Rua in the light heavyweight main event from inside the Nelio Dias Gymnasium on March 23, 2014.

Yep, that's a Sunday.

Henderson first battled his fellow PRIDE FC veteran in the main event of UFC 139 back in 2011. His "Fight of the Year" candidate was the last time the former middleweight recorded a win, having since dropped his next three contests, including a pair of split decisions to Lyoto Machida and Rashad Evans.

Then came a devastating knockout loss against the revitalized Vitor Belfort.

Rua (22-8) is 2-2 during that same span. After rebounding with a technical knockout win over Brandon Vera, "Shogun" dropped consecutive bouts to Alexander Gustafsson and Chael Sonnen. With his future at 205 pounds in jeopardy, the Brazilian roared back to crush James Te Huna.

Now he tries to get one back against "Hendo."

That's not all.

UFC Fight Night 38 will also feature a light heavyweight bangfest between Fabio Maldonado and Gian Villante, in addition to a middleweight mash-up pitting C.B. Dollaway against Cezar Ferreira in a battle of Ultimate Fighter (TUF) grads (full fight card here).

See you next weekend!
