For an event named ‘Redemption’, not very many people have been paying too much attention to the only star who ended up redeeming himself: Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua. What’s next for him? Ask Tatame:
Going to a two weeks trip with his wife to relax, the Brazilian put his UFC future in his manager’s hands, but gives some tips to the matchmaker Joe Silva. “Nobody spoke yet (about my next fight), but my goal is to win the next one. I’m already focused for the next fight. I’ll fight anyone, but a rematch (with Forrest Griffin) would be welcome. He’s a good fighter and it’d be a good fight. I’ll fight anyone, but it’d be cool to fight him again, I’d love it”.
I’m still not sold on the whole “Shogun rebirth” many other people thought they witnessed on Saturday, but a rematch with Forrest sounds pretty damn good to me. Unfortunately, it may not happen for a while: Forrest is already slated to face off against another mean motherfucker in Thiago Silva at UFC 101.
