Mauricio Rua will fight Chael Sonnen in Saturday's UFC on FOX Sports main event, knowing full well that Sonnen has been approved and will be a TRT regime headng into the bout. However, it's not a worry of Rua's and he believes regardless he has the skillset and will prevail against Sonnen:
"I don’t care about that," he said. "I want to fight. With TRT or not, I will get there to do my job and will get the win. I’ve worked a lot on my jiu-jitsu with Roberto Gordo, and I’m ready to face him on the ground. But the fight starts standing, and that’s where I like to fight. I’m going to fight and won’t miss opportunities."
Shogun vs. Sonnen is different than any of Chael’s last fights. A master on the art of talking trash, "The People's Champ" didn’t had one bad thing to say about his next opponent, and that surprised everyone – including Rua.
"(Trash talk) gives me more motivation, but he didn’t say a word about me, and that’s surprising," Rua said. "I always respected my opponents and never got into those talks, so I will respect him as I always did. But I was surprised that he didn’t talk trash about me."
