'Shogun' Hoping to Square Off With Couture

May 10, 2010

A few hours after his impressive first round knock out of champion Lyoto Machida at UFC 113 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, Mauricio "Shogun" Rua spoke with Sherdog.com about his dominant performance.

Rua, a former Pride middleweight Grand Prix champion, earned the UFC light heavyweight title with the victory. Less than four minutes into the bout, a right hook by Rua started the end for Machida as "Shogun" avenged his controversial October 2009 loss to Machida.

In this video Rua talks about how important the UFC belt is to him, and his desire to fight a hero of his, Randy Couture.
