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 RedeTV.com, 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.”
