MMA fans were treated to something special when Dan Henderson and Mauricio Rua met in the main event of UFC 139. Both men had moments where it appeared they were about to be finished, but displayed incredible courage in continuing to fight until the final bell.
It was one of the best fights in MMA history, and Shogun wants to do it again. Via UOL Esporte (translation via Tom Mendes):
It was certainly a big fight. I don't know how the judges scored the last round, they could or they should have given a 10-8 for me. But that doesn't take anything away from Dan Henderson. He's a legend and that's the type of fight where you create a legacy. But I want a rematch, I think it would be a great battle and the fans want to see it.
A rematch would no doubt be thrilling but the idea of either man taking that much damage over the course of a fight yet again is almost frightening.
