Chael Sonnen On If Fight With Mauricio “Shogun” Rua Has Been Cancelled

Chael Sonnen is heading to Boston this August and fighting former UFC light heavyweight champion Mauricio “Shogun” Rua.

Reports earlier this week started surfacing concerning a possible issue with some of the international fighters obtaining a fight license to compete in Massachusetts. The state has a law that prohibits fighters from competing without a social security number.

Rua, being a Brazilian, would not have a number. However, Sonnen says the fight is a go for August 17 at UFC on FS1: Shogun vs. Sonnen.

“The fight has never been in jeopardy,” said Sonnen, during Tuesday’s edition of UFC Tonight. “Shogun and I have already been cleared.”
