Mauricio "Shogun" Rua talks to Tatame.com:
"I’m not feeling any pain in my knee and my doctor said I could fully return to my trainings, so I’m training as I always did, super confident and if God helps me, I’ll be prepared on March 19th… Rashad’s a very tough guy, he’s a good wrestler and boxer, actually he is a guy I consider complete."
"I believe he’ll try to use his boxing skills on my or will try to take me down and use his ground and pound, so I’m training much Wrestling and Muay Thai, he’s tough and I have to train all modalities."
