Mauricio “Shogun” Rua blazed onto the Pride Fighting Championship scene with his incredible 1st round TKO of Quinton “Rampage” Jackson at the 2005 Pride Middleweight Grand Prix.
Mauricio “Shogun” Rua trains with renowned strength and conditioning specialist Todd Norman. Shogun uses cutting edge technology, including Nike Vapor Strobes, special glasses that flash intermittently, temporarily impairing his vision. The glasses make it more challenging when working on reaction speeds and avoiding strikes. When the glasses are removed, Shogun is able to react faster through heightened visual focus and awareness. Rua faces Forrest Griffin in the co-main event at UFC Rio: Silva vs. Okami, Saturday, August 27, live on Pay-Per-View, 9PM/6PM ET/PT.
