The clock is ticking, 10 days left to a historical night at Rio de Janeiro, but Brazilian fans heard some bad news today: Mauricio Shogun, the co-headliner against Forrest Griffin, injured his knee and was out of the show. Fans at Twitter sent him and his manager, Eduardo Alonso, tons of messages during the day, but it turns out that the rumors aren’t true. "His knees are absolutely perfect, there’s no injury… I don’t know where people take that from," Alonso told TATAME this Wednesday. "He’s training hard, following the training scheduled with Rafael Cordeiro, Renato Babalu (Sobral) and all the team... He’s very excited or this fight".
