When Mauricio "Shogun" Rua steps into the Octagon to defend the UFC light heavyweight title against Jon Jones it will be close to a full calender year since he won UFC gold. Perhaps the fine folks at Zuffa thought it might be prudent to remind fans that Rua is a pretty damn good fighter.
In that spirit Yahoo Sports is showing UFC 113's main event title fight between then champ, Lyoto Machida, and Mauricio "Shogun" Rua for free.
For those interested in studying some pre-fight tape I'd suggest observing how Mauricio Rua fights in the clinch and off his back.
While the Jon Jones hype train spends a lot of time evangelizing his unorthodox striking, a great deal of his offense comes from dominating in the clinch and top position. Seeing how Mauricio gets back to his feet from half-guard against Machida, in addition to attacking Lyoto's thighs with knees in the clinch might be foreshadowing for this weekend's title fight.
