MMA Mania has a very in-depth look at The Weaknesses of Shogun Rua by AintNoSunshine that is well worth a look for all fans of technical discussion. It's a good counter to yesterday's Judo Chop on the weaknesses of Jon Jones. Will Jon Jones be able to capitalize on the flaws in Mauricio "Shogun" Rua's game? UFC 128: Shogun vs. Evans coverage

Dana White tells MMA Junkie that Mauricio "Shogun" Rua will be sidelined indefinitely due to another knee surgery, and thus there's no time-table for his first defense against Rashad Evans: "He just got out of the hospital; it was a successful surgery," White said. "He had the surgery in [Los Angeles], and he's going to be doing all his therapy in (Las) Vegas. "So he'll be in Vegas for the next five weeks." White said Rua's injury occurred during the fight with Machida, though a report from ESPN's "MMA Live" the night of the May 8 event stated Rua's knee was already injured. "He got hurt in the fight," White asserted.

Lyoto wants his belt back! "It’s a complicated moment for me, I’m looking for the mistakes I made in the fight, but on the other hand it’s great because I’m getting a lot of support from my fans". "I was well trained and focused because our previous fight had a lot of controversies. I wanted to end this fight, I was feeling fast but a fight is a fight, there’s not much to say. Sometimes you are winning the fight but get caught and it’s over. I think I was winning the fight even though he was more aggressive". "Merits to Shogun, he deserved it and is the new champion, but that’s not the end of the story, life goes on". Leaving the top of his division, Lyoto dreams about the opportunity to fight for the title once again. "Whoever has the belt in the future, I hope to have that opportunity [again], but if it’s Shogun that will be even better, as the victory will be more satisfying". "His punch connected and, in this division, it’s hard to absorb the blow. When it connects, it’s really difficult [to absorb it]" "My goal is to fight for the title in a year or maybe even less, perhaps around 10 months or so. Regaining the belt is my new dream."

I think this fight will play out very similar to the first fight, with Shogun being slightly more aggressive and taking the decision this time."

Shogun’s main trainer, André Dida, shares his thoughts on the rematch: "I wouldn’t want to be Lyoto right now because Shogun is going to rip his belt with kicks"…"To be honest, it’s not a good plan for Lyoto to stand with Shogun. He knows that his Karate won’t beat the Muay Thai. In my opinion as coach, he’s going to want to work his Jiu-Jitsu with Shogun. I don’t think he’s going to want to trade with Muay Thai because he saw what happened last time, he came out very hurt [from the fight] and was not efficient. So I think he’s going to want to work on his Jiu-Jitsu". This Fan Shot was promoted to the front page by Nick Thomas. HT: portaldovt.com.br UFC 113: Machida vs. Shogun 2 coverage
