Mauricio “Shogun” Rua will return to the ring almost six months after breaking his arm during a fight against Mark Coleman. He’s looking for another shot at Coleman on Pride’s biggest stage yet.
“Recovery is coming very well and I’m looking forward to fighting in October,” said Shogun. “I want to fight Mark Coleman and hopefully he’ll accept the fight. The last fight was a mishap and I don’t think it will happen again.”
“I think its going to be Coleman. I hope its going to be Coleman, but its still not for sure. My sights are set on Coleman,” said Rua about the prospects of his next fight.
“He is a great wrestler, but I’m not too worried about his wrestling. I’m going to do what I always do and I’m going for the knockout. I’m not concerned about his wrestling because I’m going to knock him out,” said Shogun.
