Shogun: I'm not worried about TRT, will get the win over Sonnen

 

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."

Shogun gets the finish in the first round. If he doesnt he most likely loses a boring decision. War Shogun!

Going to be a sick fight. I say it goes to decision if Sonnen doesn't go for GnP early.

Shogun already has a damn good half guard game. Will be interesting to see how the king of half guard Gordo will improve on it

It's going to be an Ass Whoopin'.  TRT Sonnen is already talking his way to a third Silva fight.

Sucks that someone needs to lose but if you root against a warrior like Shogun you are trolled by Sonnen (and super gay).
