The following statement appeared on the Chutebox US website this morning:

Mauricio “Shogun” Rua has signed a contract with the UFC and may participate in UFC 72.

There's no point in having a 'super bowl' mma night when all the good fighters are heading towards the UFC roster

Maybe that was the reason behind the shift to PPV...well, they've now sold me (assuming it actually happens). The only question left would be is...who is he fighting?

Wow i am so happy i know people who are going to ireland around that time and were happy they were gonna see a ufc (i'm from canada) but it was a shitty card so they weren't super excited wooo hooo

They will give him a can and it will imitate the rich franklin vs Silva fight, i'll bet money on that

Maybe they want it to be a feeder organization like DEEP used to be for Pride ?

Just my $0.02 worth
