White recently signed Mauricio "Shogun" Rua, who current UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton "Rampage" Jackson called the best fighter he'd ever faced. Rua (16-2) will make his UFC debut Sept. 22.

IMO he is the best guy he ever faced. He ran through Rampage like there was no tomorrow.

That would be a bad move, skill wise he deserves a title shot, but if he won he would be an unpopular champion. the only reason Henderson is fighting against Rampage first is because they are trying to unify the belts, the ignorant MMA fan isnt going to know who shogun is, they need to build him up in the UFC with at least two fights like they were doing with cro cop. First pit him against an average opponent and when he walks through him put him against a top tier fighter, the winner getting a title shot, if he wins that he will have enough popularity here to deserve a title shot in the eyes of the average consumer

They don't need to build him up. Rampage had one fight vs a can before he beat Chuck. Just show vids of Shogun caving in Rampage's ribs with knees and the fight will get the hype it deserves.
