A report out of Brazil states that Shogun Rua and Dan Henderson will be rematching in March in Brazil.

Wow! I really don't see how this fight could be any less epic than the first. Could go either way, but I have to give Shogun the advantage since he was stronger at the end of the last meeting and this one takes place in Brazil. That being said, It's almost impossible to think of Hendo losing 4 in a row.

I have a gut feeling that this fight isn't going to be half as good as the first time they met.

That would mean Hendo resigned with the UFC. But did say last week they were far apart on terms

I didn't see this coming, thought Shogun was going to drop to MW. He beat Te Huna sure, but this fight is a must win for Dan for sure!

Holy shit! Impossible to live up to their first / last fight. That was such a long time in the making and delivered in such a big way. This should still be insane though

They could fight 8x in a row & I'd be okay with it

Well it's in Brazil I would have to go with Rua. If I'm right I really hope Hendo steps away after such a great HOF career I really don't want to see Hendo go out losing five or six in a row.

I know he has said recently that he wants to continue to fight no matter what. So even if he beats Rua I think that would be the perfect time to step away with a win over another future HOFer.

Same here.

The first fight was too good. There's no way a rematch could live up to the first.

Of course, I won't be disappointed if they prove me wrong.
