Former UFC light heavyweight champion and 2005 Pride Middleweight Grand Prix champion Mauricio Rua, who fights Chael Sonnen at UFC Fight Night 26 on August 17, got in a training session with famed striking coach Freddie Roach.
"This all happened because my manager contacted Freddie Roach and his team and scheduled some training sessions," said 'Shogun'. "It's been really good for me because I've learned some details to improve my fighting."
"He really saw an improvement in my punches because of the coaching he gave me. So now I punch like Superman."
"When we started, he really didn't know how to pivot and put his full weight behind the punches and so forth, but we've been working on that," said Roach adding "it doesn't take long for him to pick it up."
