If Rua hopes to make another run at the 205 title, then tomorrow’s fight could be a must win situation for the Brazilian star. The former champ is currently ranked #6 in the division, and when you consider that Rua’s now 35 year’s old, a loss would be a considerable setback.
Villante, meanwhile, is looking to climb into the top ten, as he’s currently ranked #12. A win over a big name like Rua, could do just that.
Recently the UFC posted the video below, which features Joe Rogan previewing tomorrow’s fight.
