“I spoke with my manager now and he said they called him and said it would depend on Octoberâ€™s event. I might face Mark Coleman on December, but nothing has been signed yet. He wanted to face me on November, and I really wanna face him, I hope this time he donâ€™t run from me. He said no to me a couple of times, but I believe now it will happen.”
UFC light heavyweight Mauricio “Shogun” Rua tells Tatame that me may face UFC hall of famer Mark Coleman in December. Rua, a PRIDE veteran, was defeated by Forrest Griffin in his UFC debut in November while Coleman last fought in late-2006, losing to Fedor Emelianenko at PRIDE 32. Coleman and Rua previously fought at PRIDE 31 in early-2006 with Coleman scoring a TKO victory after “Shogun” sustained a broken arm in the opening minute of the bout.
