Mauricio ‘Shogun‘ Rua may be getting a long-awaited rematch with Mark Coleman in December, according to a recent interview.

The Brazilian light-heavyweight said that the UFC had mentioned the bout to his management but nothing has been signed yet.

“I might face Mark Coleman on December, but nothing has been signed yet. He wanted to face me on November, and I really want to face him,” Rua told Tatame magazine.

“I hope this time he doesn’t run from me. He said no to me a couple of times, but I believe now it will happen.”

Shogun by round 2 KO.

Coleman will blow his wad in the first round to save his life by takedown attempts and lay & pray.

Coleman will not have anything left by round 2 to finish another takedown, and Shogun takes his head off on his feet.

i hope we see the real shogun return for this fight. i want to see total domination by shogun. i say they sign phil baroni to a one fight deal so the hammer house/chute box feud can be settled. shogun/coleman and w. silva/baroni. then we could see coleman and baroni get smashed! how great would that be!?!?

It will be at LHW, Coleman was planning on fighting at 205 when he got in the UFC in the first place, but the UFC wanted him to fight Brock and he accepted. He said he was keeping his weight at around 220.

Here is part of an interview where he says he can fight at 205: (its from mmamania.com)

Mark Coleman: I didn’t anticipate this match-up and just found out about it myself. In my mind, I thought I was possibly going to be fighting at 205 my next fight. So yeah, I am a little light. I’m probably walking around at 225. But there’s no sense in me trying to add a bunch of weight, because it’d be useless weight. I’ve been real strict on my diet to weigh 225, but I’ll probably come in around 230.

there was a video interview where he actually says he wants to fight at 205, and cutting 20lbs is easy for him, and that was his plan coming into the UFC (this is before he was offered Brock)

I was wondering the same thing. My guess is they have it as a HW fight, only because im not sure how much Coleman weighs nowadays.

I think they most likely fight at HW. I don't really like it... I would rather see Shogun return against Sokodjou.

As long as shogun gets the win and then works his way back up to being dominate.

Hopefully Shogun will be 100% now. I like thhis match up because their first fight had some big hostility to it not to mention a weird ending, I would like to see Shogun dominate and then move on to soko and other top 205er's.
