Mauricio “Shogun” Rua reveals knee is 100%, no date confirmed for return

UFC light heavyweight champion, Mauricio “Shogun” Rua has revealed that his knee is back to 100% following surgery earlier this year and that once he’s received the green light from the doctor he will start planning his next fight inside the octagon.

Shogun, speaking via, said:

“No, nothing has been confirmed yet [regarding a fight with Rashad Evans]. I had a meeting with Lorenzo and Dana in the US last month. My goal is to come back fighting in February [2011], but there is no date defined yet, and much less an opponent. I’m going back to the US next month for a doctor’s appointment, my knee is 100% and with the doctor clearing me that’s when we’ll start planning our next fight.”
