Mauricio “Shogun” Rua is open to facing Anderson Silva in the future

UFC light heavyweight champion, Mauricio “Shogun” Rua has revealed that he’s willing to face current UFC middleweight champion, Anderson Silva down the line, but not before he defends hit title next month at UFC 128.

Rua, speaking via Tatame Magazine, said:

“Now I’m focused on Jon Jones. It’s a sin to speak about my next fight when I’m thinking about a man like Jon Jones. So I’m focused on him, but I already answered. It’s obvious I’d fight Anderson. I respect him as a friend and professional, but I also am a professional. Yes, I’d fight him.”
