The first fight between Dan Henderson and Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua is widely considered to be the greatest single bout in UFC history. The two long time veterans waged a war of attrition over five rounds during their fight in 2011, but on Sunday in Brazil they will have the opportunity to do it all over again.
Henderson and Shogun will headline the 12-bout card from Natal, Brazil on Sunday night, March 23 airing live on FOX Sports 1.
In addition to the main event, former Ultimate Fighter finalist CB Dollaway will look to find the same kind of success the last time he fought in Brazil when he takes on TUF Brazil champion Cezar ‘Mutante’ Ferreira in the co-main event.
Two more Ultimate Fighter champions will also face off when TUF Brazil 2’s Leonardo Santos takes on TUF The Smashes winner Norman Parke. Sluggers Fabio Maldonado and Gian Villante will also throw down on the main card from Brazil.
