Shogun Rua Thinks Dan Henderson Fight Should Have Been A Draw, Welcomes Rematch

Now that his head has cleared after his brutal fight with Dan Henderson at UFC 139 and he’s had a chance to watch it several times, Mauricio “Shogun” Rua believes the fight should have actually been scored a draw as he tells Jon Anik in this FUEL TV interview. Shogun hopes he’ll get a rematch one day, but for now he just wants to get back in the cage as soon as possible.

While I agree that the fight should have been scored a draw, I really don’t want to see a rematch, at least not yet. It was an amazing fight, arguably the best fight in the history of the sport, but sequels are rarely as good as the original and I’d hate to spoil the memory of that fight with something less spectacular. If it makes sense for them to fight again one day and it happens organically, then I’m all for it, but I won’t disappointed either if that one just stay in the history books.
