Shogun's Next Fight

Does anyone know or have heard a rumor about who Shogun Rua is going to fight next.

Hopefully its either Henderson in Pride or Sobral in UFC

EITHER WAY I HOPE HIS NEXT WILL BE IN UFC SO IGNORANT PEOPLE CAN GET EDUCATED ON RUA AND REALIZE THAT HE WILL DESTROY CHUCK LIDDELL AND EVERYIONE IN THEIR LHW DIVISION. BUT SUKODJOU WOULD BE A GREAT FIGHT TOO

If its not Sokky or Hendo Ill be very upset. Chuck would work too but I dont think that fight would happen for awhile and I need my Shogun asap

14-1 in Forum Bets

I like Sokky but i saw him get rocked in WEC and i question if he could trade with Rua. i think he would get KTFO pretty quick. And as far as Chuck goes i would love to see that fight but i heard that if Shogun went to the UFC he'd want Sobral so he can avenge their first fight

Im pretty sure Sokudjou has better stand up than Shogun, but overall, Rua has him beat

i doubt it.. shogun uses every thing he has as a weapon ... from his toes, heels, shins, foot, knees, forearms, shoulder, wrist, hammerfist, fist, elbows..

when all weve seen soko do is throw a punch defend a takedown and throw some kicks..

shogun has proved himself over and over and over

i dunno, you guys think that shogun would want to stand up with soko? shogun seems a little to cerebral and smart for that. seems to me that he should go for the takedown immediately and try submitting him. then again, there is the question of getting past soko's td defense. it will be an interesting fight, though, i want to see soko against overeem first.

hughes>trigg>misaki>henderson>wanderlei>Fujita>Sap p

Hughes>Sapp

Overeem easily dominated Shougun standing. If Overeem was able out strike Shogun I wouldnt doubt Sokudjous abilities to outmatch Shogun in that area.
