Shogun vs Gustafsson set for UFC on FOX 5.

Two top Light-Heavyweights are set to collide at UFC on FOX 5 as Shogun Rua meets Alexander Gustafsson. The bout is set to take place on December 8th however the location has still to be named according to USA Today.

In his last bout Shogun defeated Brandon Vera in a well contested bout with Rua eventually getting the stoppage in the fourth round due to strikes. Shogun was in the running for a title shot at either current Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones or challenger Dan Henderson depending on the result at UFC 151. However he was pipped at the post by Lyoto Machida who knocked out Ryan Bader.

Gustafsson in his last bout defeated Thiago Silva at UFC on Fuel TV: Gustafsson vs. Silva back in April. ‘The Mauler’ is also currently on a five fight winning streak with four finishes and a win over the former champion Shogun could put him at number two in the line for a shot at the belt after Machida.

Well, I'm stoked! What do you guys think?

Give More.
Give everything.
Give blood.
