“UFC 113: Machida Vs. Shogun 2″ Officially Announced

The Ultimate Fighting Championship has officially announced the long-rumored light heavyweight rematch between Mauricio “Shogun” Rua and champion Lyoto “The Dragon” Machida at UFC 113 from the Bell Centre in Montreal, Canada.

Machida took a controversial unanimous decision over Rua at UFC 104 on October 24th in Los Angeles, CA which prompted UFC president Dana White to schedule an immediate do-over.

“The first fight between Machida and Shogun was very controversial, I think fans are very excited to see them fight again and find out who the best light heavyweight in the world is,” White said in a press release.

Tickets for “UFC 113: Machida vs. Shogun 2″ go on sale February 20th, the same night that UFC 110 takes place, but if you are a Newsletter or UFC Fight Club member you can buy tickets on either February 18th or February 19th, respectively.
