As he explains in this training montage, Mauricio “Shogun” Rua’s dream is to become a UFC champion again and he believes his former Chute Boxe trainer Rafael Cordeiro is the man to get him there.
Isn’t a little early for Shogun to be thinking about a title again though considering he just lost it to Jon Jones? Well, not necessarily. Dana White said on the UFC 134 conference call today that Shogun may only be two wins away from another shot at the title depending on how the fight goes.
His “quest” starts next weekend when he looks to avenge his loss to Forrest Griffin at UFC 134.
