This Saturday’s scrap between “Shogun” Rua and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira won’t propel either man into title contention, but it is a pretty interesting bout for old school fans.
Of course, when you consider the records and accomplishments of both men, it’s a compelling fight just because of that. But, since the two fought back in 2005, and engaged in one of PRIDE’s best fights ever, the bout’s not lacking in backstory either. Rua won that bout via UD.
In advance of the bout, which will co-headline UFC 190, the promotion has released a “Countdown” segment covering the fight. You can watch it below.
UFC 190 will go down on August 1st in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
