Shogun Rua Answers The Challenge Of Quinton “Rampage” Jackson

If Quinton “Rampage Jackson” wants to face Mauricio “Shogun” Rua again, the Brazilian is all for it.

After besting Antonio Rogerio Nogueira this past weekend at UFC 190, Rua was called out via social media by Jackson.

“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.”
