Mauricio Rua had no qualms about going toe to toe with Gian Villante.

What, did you expect otherwise from the legend?

Sure, “Shogun” took his share of damage. But as he’s proven time and again during his illustrious career, he can take it. Where he’s thrived is dishing it, which is what happened at UFC Fight Night 106.

After rocking Villante (16-8 MMA, 5-5 UFC) with a head kick early in the third, Rua (25-10 MMA, 9-8 UFC) pressed forward with a blistering punch combination that dropped Villante up against the fence, bringing an end to the bout at the 0:59 mark of Round 3.

The light heavyweight bout was the co-main event of today’s UFC Fight Night 106 event at Centro de Formacao Olimpica do Nordeste in Fortaleza, Ceara, Brazil. It aired on FS1 following additional prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.

Rua has now won three straight, his longest winning streak in more than 10 years, when he was in PRIDE before coming to the UFC.

Check out the highlights above.
