Henderson-Rua rematch today on UFC card in Brazil


A rematch of the top fight from 2011 headlines a rare Sunday card for the Ultimate Fighting Championship today in Natal, Brazil.

Dan Henderson won a unanimous decision over former light heavyweight champion Mauricio “Shogun” Rua at UFC 139 in 2011 in a back-and-forth thriller that earned several awards for fight of the year.

Henderson has gone 0-3 since. Rua will be seeking revenge in his home country.

The entire 10-fight card, which also features a middleweight bout between Cezar Ferreira and C.B. Dollaway, airs live on Fox Sports 1 at 2 p.m.
