Well now ... this is interesting. Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight champion Mauricio Rua might not be ready to make that long-rumored drop to middleweight just yet, but "Shogun" isn't opposed to testing the lighter waters with a 195-pound catchweight fight. And the Brazilian's manager, Eduardo Alonso, knows just the guy to meet him there. "If I could choose, I'd love to see him fighting Michael Bisping," Alonso told PVT (via MMA Fighting).

With a 6-8 record in the UFC, Mauricio "Shogun" Rua might change a few things for his next fight. Finished for the third time in the past four bouts after his last appearance against Ovince Saint Preux in November, "Shogun" could be heading down to middleweight. However, before cutting to 185 pounds, his manager Eduardo Alonso suggests a 195-catchweight bout first. "I would really like to see ‘Shogun’ in a catchweight bout next," Alonso told PVT. "I suggested some names to the UFC, and I would l read news >>

Like Joe Rogan said after the doctor rushed in to check on Mauricio Rua: "It wasn't even a struggle." Jon Jones would barely struggle in any of his fights outside of Alexander Gustafsson, after beating the brakes off the legendary Brazilian way back at UFC 128. But that could all change when he collides with Daniel Cormier at the UFC 182 pay-per-view (PPV) event next weekend (Sat., Jan. 3, 2015) in Las Vegas, Nevada, as "DC" has done some smashing of his own (proof).

Mauricio "Shogun" Rua has been fighting for over a decade and, while still fairly young at 32 years old, wins have been hard to come by. On November 8, Rua took on late replacement Ovince St. Preux in a five-round, light heavyweight tilt at UFC Fight Night 56. The results were disastrous. The Haitian finished Rua in dramatic fashion in the very first round, handing the Brazilian another TKO loss. The fight marked the first time in his career that he has suffered back-to-back TKO losses. "I'm goi read news >>

Tim Kennedy says moving to 185 lbs is a wrong more for Mauricio 'Shogun' Rua Following his 34 second knockout loss to Ovince St. Preux this past weekend, people have expressed concern over the former UFC champ and PRIDE star in Mauricio Rua. It was his 4th loss in his last 5 contests, and some pundits have even called for his retirement. The setback dropped him from the top 10 of the rankings, but according to a statement he released online, instead of hanging it up, Shogun is considering a chan read news >>

There weren't very many changes in the UFC's latest rankings update, but the most notable one was the end of Mauricio Rua's reign as a top 10 light heavyweight. Two UFC events over a two day span produced very little change in the rankings. Why? Because there were only a few ranked fighters competing out of a possible 30+, and that's including John Lineker/Ian McCall prior to its last minute cancellation. However, one change of note came at light heavyweight, where Mauricio Rua was dropped out o read news >>

If there's one thing I love about Tim Kennedy, it's his subtlety. The No. 7-ranked middleweight issued a dire warning to struggling light heavyweight striker, Mauricio Rua, after the Brazilian teased a possible drop down to 185 pounds. The same division that houses monsters like Yoel Romero, Luke Rockhold and of course, Kennedy himself. Somebody tell Shogun that it is a VERY bad idea to move down to 185. It is a total shark tank down here and we will all eat him up. — Tim Kennedy (@TimKennedyMMA read news >>
