According to a report by Brazilian reporter Ivan Raupp, Mauricio “Shogun” Rua and Chael Sonnen will face off at UFC 161: Evans vs. Henderson later this month.

The report, which confirmed the new fight with Rua’s manager, also states that the former UFC champion will coach alongside Antonio Rogerio Nogueira on The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil 3.

Rua and Nogueira were originally scheduled to meet, but Nogueira was forced out with a back injury.

Sonnen went to Twitter over the weekend once news broke that Nogueira would be forced out and made it known that he would step in on short notice.
