UFC 104: Mauricio Shogun Rua signs to fight Lyoto Machida in October
By: MMAmania


The 2005 Pride FC Middleweight Grand Prix winner, Mauricio “Shogun” Rua, earlier this week did indeed sign a bout agreement to challenge UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Lyoto Machida, which will more than likely take place at UFC 104 from the Staples Center in Los Angeles, Calif., on Oct. 24.

SuperLutas.com.br was able to confirm the rumored match up with sources close to the Brazilian’s camp.

Rua is coming off a first round technical knockout of former 205-pound champion, Chuck Liddell, at UFC 97: “Redemption” last month. He defeated Mark Coleman via third round technical knockout in a lackluster performance earlier this year at UFC 93: “Franklin vs. Henderson” to earn a crack at the “Iceman.”

It’s perhaps not the match up that most fans expected, especially when UFC President Dana White revealed over the weekend that Quinton “Rampage” Jackson would be the first to challenge Machida for his newly-won world title. But that all went out the window a few days later when Jackson apparently pressed UFC officials to settle a score with Rashad Evans via The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 10 first rather than compete for a world title.

That left Machida — who flatted Evans at UFC 98 to win the belt — all of a sudden without a number one contender … until now.

Keep in mind that White did not announce the bout yesterday during a media conference call because he indicated that not all bout agreements were finalized. That more than likely means Machida — who is currently celebrating his big win on a beach in Belem — may still have to agree to the fight and formalize it with a signature.

"Machida — who is currently celebrating his big win on a beach in Belem..."

Im glad for him but fucking jelous!!! sounds great, I wanna celebrate on a beach in Belem too :)


I think its weird.

Shogun beat Chuck, but hasnt he got a few more guys to go thrue before he should loose to Machida? It will throw Shogun back to the bottom if he looses that fight, wont it?
I would say he had to beat and win over a few other guys before he gets the etitle eshot (lol) but I guess it makes for a very entertaining matchup.

Would be cool if UFC 104 was in Brazil hehe

What's with all the undeserving title challengers recently?

Yea, I understand what you mean. Shogun lost to Forrest Griffin in a match where people expected to run over Forest Griffin. Then he beat Mark Coleman in a terrible fought match. Then he defeated a Chuck Liddel in bad condition. Even though I still feel that Shogun should win a fight or two, before stepping up for the title, I still believe, that he is the only one in the lightheavyweightdivison that can actually threat Lyoto. If Rampage would fight Lyoto, it would be the same kind of match, as it was with Rashad. For not long ago, there was alot of talk about how stacked the lightheavyweight-division was. Now it can end up like being the same as Anderson Silva in the middleweight-division, just with Lyoto instead. Hard to see who will actually be able to beat him. I guess Dana will have to bring new guys in as Mousasi or Mo Lawal. An outsider could be Jon Jones, but that will years in the future.

It’s time for some Brazilian-on-Brazilian crime.

MMAmania.com has learned that bout agreements have been signed for the light heavyweight title fight between newly-minted champion Lyoto Machida (15-0) and 2005 Pride FC Middleweight Grand Prix winner Mauricio Rua (18-3) for UFC 104 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California, on October 24.

“Shogun” is coming off a first round technical knockout of former 205-pound champion, Chuck Liddell, at UFC 97: “Redemption” last month. He defeated Mark Coleman via third round technical knockout in a lackluster performance earlier this year at UFC 93: “Franklin vs. Henderson” to earn a crack at the “Iceman.”

It’s perhaps not the match up that most fans expected, especially when UFC President Dana White was quick to announce that Quinton “Rampage” Jackson would be the first to challenge Machida for his newly-won world title. But that all went out the window a few days later when Jackson apparently pressed UFC officials to settle a score with Rashad Evans via The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 10 first rather than compete to get his belt back.

That left "The Dragon" — who flattened Evans at UFC 98 to win the belt — all of a sudden without a number one contender … until now.

Despite his recent success, some UFC fans still aren’t sold on the abilities of Rua, who must now muster up some of the mojo he had during his blistering run in PRIDE to try and overcome an opponent who went from tentative to homicidal in the span of three figthts.

Machida will also try to stop the revolving door that has continued to spin atop the division afterChuckLiddell coughed up the 205-pound belt just over two years ago. In fact since May of 2007, the light heavyweight title has changed hands a total of four times.

No question Rua will be looking to make it five.
