UFC GIF: Shogun Rua beats James Te-Huna with a showtime knock-out

by Rob Dore | December 7, 2013

Coming in to this fight on the back of two disappointing losses, particularly being submitted by Chael Sonnen last time out, there was a lot on the line for 32-year old Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua in Brisbane on Friday night.

The former light-heavyweight champion hasn’t managed to string two UFC wins together since beating Matt Hammill and Chuck Liddell back in 2009, despite becoming the champion in 2010.

Needing to impress to get himself moving back towards title contention and facing the home favourite and heavy-hitting James Te-Huna, also 32, Shogun did just that with this comprehensive first round knockout.

With this punch the Brazilian is almost relevant again and Te-Huna may be teetering on the cut line.
