Every Wednesday, Administrative Editor Jordan Breen welcomes a member of the mixed martial arts media into “Press Row” on the Sherdog.com blog. This week, Breen is joined by Fox Sports MMA writer Damon Martin.
Before their rematch two-and-a-half years in the making in Natal, Brazil, Breen and Martin review the careers and legacies of Dan Henderson and Mauricio “Shogun” Rua. The two recall the first contest, the surprise classic that emerged, what it means for both fighters legacies, how narratives around “Hendo” and Shogun have changed over the last 10 years, what a win would mean for either man at this point and whether or not there's interesting opponents left for them in the Octagon.
Breen and Martin also discuss whether Henderson's career would've been different without attempting to make middleweight, Rua's knee injuries, the surprising current success of Quinton Jackson, the underrated nature of the Henderson-”Rampage” UFC title fight and much, much more.
Grab your credential and get a seat in “Press Row.”
