Shogun пропуска UFC 63?

Mauricio "Shogun" Rua (16-2 MMA, 0-0 UFC), who recently signed with the UFC, may be scractched from his upcoming debut with the organization because of a knee injury.Rua, who was supposed to fight at UFC 76 in September, should know the extent of the injury in the next couple days, according to GracieFighter.com.

PRIDE's 2005 Grand Prix Tournament winner had fought for the Japanese-based fight organization since October 2003 and racked up victories over such notables as current UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton Jackson, Ricardo Arona and Antonio Rogerio "Minotoro" Nogueira.

The 25-year-old is a member of the famed Chute Box team and has won 12 of his past 13 fights — nine of which came via knockout or technical knockout. UFC president White said he considers Rua an immediate contender for the light-heavyweight belt.

UFC 76 is expected to take place at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif., on Sept. 22. Mike Swick and

Evan Tanner are also expected to fight at the event, though their opponents are not yet known.

Edit: Все пак контузията на Shogun не е сериознa и ще го видим в UFC. :clap:

Shogun close to a deal with UFC

Mauricio Shogun is really close to signing the contract with UFC. With his brother, Murilo Ninja, who gave the first american belt to Chute Boxe, Shogun get the chance to fix his future in th US. "I had meetings with a lot of events and talked to White personally. We lost some bucks in the casino (laughs). I believe next week we are going to set this fight for september", told Shogun

However his work is already recognized by the japanese audience, the CB fighter knows that he has a hard path to take in the USA and he prefer to not choose the oponnent. "UFC is a new event for me. In the US people don't know me. I can't choose the oponnent and i hope to earn the respect of the american audience, like i did in Japan." said Shogun. About the rumors of a possible injury, Shogun calm down the fans. "I injuried my knee training. I went to the doctor, but it was not a big deal. And he said that i can train normally", he ended.

Two-fight UFC veteran and undefeated Ryoto Machida (10-0) is the likely opponent for Mauricio ”Shogun" Rua (16-2) at UFC 76, according to recent statements from UFC President Dana White in The Gainesville Sun.

Here’s the quick snip:

”…. White said Rua’s most likely first opponent will be Ryoto Machida …

Machida has toppled Sam Hoger and David Heath — in rather unceremonious fashion (decisions) — since his UFC arrival from the World Fighting Alliance (WFA) earlier this year.

The 205-pound fighter also has previous wins over former UFC middleweight champion Rich Franklin, as well as other UFC notables such as Stephan Bonnar and BJ Penn.

Machida gets a bum wrap for having somewhat of a ”boring" style. He’s an effective counter striker who forces and frustrates opponents to fight his type of fight. That could all change, however, on September 22 at UFC 76 in Anaheim, Calif., against Rua.

Shogun is perhaps the most talented mixed martial artist in the light heavyweight division today. The Brazilian has an aggressive style, putting away nearly 90 percent of his opponents early.

White has mentioned in previous interviews that Rua will earn a title shot if he can win in his debut against a ”toug" opponent.

Until now, it was rather unclear who that would be. But Machida certainly fits the description.

The following is an article from UFCJunkie.com:

Former UFC light heavyweight champion Chuck Liddell (20-4 MMA, 14-3 UFC) and Keith Jardine (12-3-1 MMA, 4-2 UFC) are expected to headline Anaheim’s UFC 76 event in September. A source close to one of the fighters told UFCjunkie.com (www.ufcjunkie.com) of a tentative agreement that was reached earlier today.

Ето и коментара на Wanderlei Silva и защо няма да може да се бие с Liddell

Former PRIDE FC Middleweight Champion Wanderlei Silva denies recent statements from UFC President Dana White that he didn’t want to fight Chuck Liddell in an article just posted on MMAWeekly.com.

“The Axe Murderer", it seems, simply didn’t want to fight him at UFC 76 in September.

Here’s the latest:

“I never said that I wouldn’t fight Chuck. I’ve wanted this fight for a long time. I received a contract with two options, I could fight in September or November. I have chosed to make this fight in November. I was the first to want this fight, but they kept avoiding this fight. Now there’s a lot of people saying that I have ducked Chuck. This is not true.

According to Silva, timing was the issue that prevented him from taking the fight in September. He’s moving to the United States in a few weeks and wouldn’t be able to put in the amount of training necessary to be at his best.

Since news of this fight falling a part emerged just a few days ago, the UFC has pinned the blame on Silva. Not surprising, Silva is not going to sit idle and be the scapegoat.

Because why would one of the most punishing fighters in the history of the sport — a man who has competed against the elite for years — turn down a big payday and refuse to fight?

It seems he didn’t.

Then again, it appears that there are more than likely three sides to this story: The UFCs, Silva’s and the absolute truth.

Regardless, Silva goes on to say that he is still down to fight Chuck in November if, of course, Liddell doesn’t “hide" from the showdown.

Here’s a snip:

“I want to fight chuck in November and make a huge show, and make it the biggest show ever…I have no doubts it’s the most important fight of my life. I know Chuck is a great name in the U.S., we’ll do a great fight. I think I must be in my best shape, so I want this time to train better to be in my bets shape ever. This fight is on, if he Chuck doesn’t hide behind this mess.

Sounds like fightin’ words to me. It also sounds like this monster clash isn’t “dead forever" — at least from Silva’s perspective.

Finally, it appears that there is a solution within reach to this mess: Both fighters want to throwdown in November (For the latest on Liddell click here).

Make it happen, please, Dana White.

UFC 76 Weigh-Ins

ANAHEIM, CALIF. – The fighters for UFC 76 weighed in Friday at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif. Former UFC light heavyweight champion Chuck Liddell and opponent Keith Jardine, the main event Saturday night, both easily made weight.

The same could not be said for Jon Fitch, however, who weighed in 1 pound over the acceptable limit of 171 pounds for his welterweight fight with Diego Sanchez. Fitch did make weight a short time later, not needing the one hour he was given to lose the necessary pound.

The fight between Anthony Johnson and Rich Clementi was agreed upon to be at a catch weight of 177 pounds, evidently due to Johnson not being able to come down to the 170-pound welterweight limit.

Following the weigh-ins, Liddell told UFC commentator Joe Rogan that he is expecting a tough fight with Jardine. “He’s a tough guy, it’s gonna’ be a fun fight. I’m gonna’ hit him hard.”

Jardine, who entered in Liddell’s shadow to a chorus of boos, responded to a question about being counted out by many pundits, “I’m not going to back down from anybody.”

The star of the weigh-ins was Mauricio “Shogun” Rua, who was showered with chants of “Shogun! Shogun!” as he made his way to the scale.

Official UFC 76 weigh-in results:

Keith Jardine (204.5) vs. Chuck Liddell (205.5)

Mauricio Rua (205) vs. Forrest Griffin (205)

Diego Sanchez (170) vs. Jon Fitch (172)

Kazuhiro Nakamura (205) vs. Lyoto Machida (205.5)
