Shogun On Anderson: ‘We Were Never Friends’

“We’ve always had a good relationship, but we were never close. I’ve always admired Anderson on the gym, but we were never friends… If UFC wanted to, I’d confront Anderson. Anderson is a very good guy, had a good technique and conditioning, he’s one of the three best pound for pound, but I’m used to challenges. I’d be a tough fight, but I like tough challenges.”

—Mauricio “Shogun” Rua talking to Tatame about facing his former Chute Boxe teammate Anderson Silva
