Mauricio “Shogun” Rua Considering Fighting In The Middleweight Division

Another former UFC light heavyweight champion, Mauricio “Shogun” Rua has spoken about considering a drop to the middleweight division following a poor fight at 205 pounds, explaining he would have to explore the possibility through medical exams but it would be a real possibility if he’s given the green light.

Rua, speaking at a Q&A session in Brazil had this to say regarding the matter:

“It might happen, but for now I have a fight scheduled. I would have to do some medical exams to see if it’s possible. My normal weight is 228, 231 pounds. Maybe I can and maintain my performance. I would need to think about it, but that’s something that can happen.”
