UFC 139 Results: Dan Henderson vs Mauricio 'Shogun' Rua Fight Video Highlights

If you didn't buy the UFC 139 pay-per-view last night, it's possible that you missed one of the greatest mixed martial arts fights ever inside the Octagon, possibly in the span of the sports' existence. Former Pride champion Dan Henderson battered and beat down former UFC champion Mauricio 'Shogun' Rua for three rounds on Saturday night at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, California.

Unfortunately for Henderson, the main event bout was a five-round affair, and Rua survived the onslaught to come back and nearly win by knockout in the fourth round. Check out BloodyElbow.com's own Brent Brookhouse's detailed account of the fourth stanza:
