UFC 113, Rematch Between The Dragon and ShogunCategory: MMA
More than six months after their first encounter at UFC 104, Lyoto “The Dragon” Machida will meet Mauricio “Shogun” Rua in a rematch to finally settle a disputed and controversial decision.
At UFC 104, Machida and Rua engaged in a tactical fight where the former won via Unanimous Decision. Many thought the latter deserved the win as he was able to neutralize Machida’s counters and did damage with his own leg kicks. Shogun also exposed The Dragon’s vulnerability in that fight.
On May 8, 2010 at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, the most awaited rematch in the history of the UFC is coming LIVE via pay-per-view.
Kevin Ferguson more popularly known as Kimbo Slice will also make his second fight in the Octagon after defeating Houston Alexander in the TUF 10 Season Finale last December. He will slug it out with co-TUF 10 fighter, Matt Mitrione.
Also, two top welterweight fighters will clash in the co-main event with Josh Koscheck facing Paul Daley.
