If Quinton “Rampage Jackson” wants to face Mauricio “Shogun” Rua again, the Brazilian is all for it.
“Rampage called me out,” he said during an interview on the FS1 post-fight show. “I’ll fight Rampage anytime. Just match it up, UFC.”
The contest would be a rematch of a 2005 meeting between the former UFC light heavyweight champions. Rua scored a first round victory in that contest via soccer kicks.
Despite a rough first round vs. Nogueira – which was also a rematch – the veteran Rua looked strong as the contest continued to develop.
“I knew it was a hard fight,” he said. “He had great boxing. I almost lost in the first round, but I battled back.”
