“It doesn’t exist, the champion doesn’t start scoring 1x0. Nobody told that. The person has to fight and win. An example is the fight between Forrest Griffin and Quinton Jackson, that Forrest won. Being the champion or not doesn't matter. I was efficient and managed to annull his game but I will come different. I’m training to performe well standing and on the floor, impose my pace and strategy and do better in all situations. That was the toughest fight of my life and today I feel more prepared and confident. I focused the technical part of the camping studying what I will do. Nobody knows what is going to happen, so I train everything from Muay Thai and jiu-jitsu for not get surprised”.

 

 

Maurício Rua (18-4) doesn’t think he wasn’t aggresive enough to convince the judges of his win in the first challenge against Lyoto Machida at UFC 104 at Staples Center on October 24 2009, in Los Angeles, California. Once again the light heavyweight number on contender blames the three judges for his loss by unanimous decision. But the Muay Thai specialist says he will come different this time... does it mean he will be more hungry for the victory or will bring new tricks on Saturday Night? What Shogun can try to surprise Machida, maniacs?
