Although Rua was just a year older than Ovince Saint Preux, mixed martial arts warps time, and Saturday night at UFC FIght Night 56, Shogun suffered his fourth loss in five fights. It took just 34 seconds.</p>
“Losing is always bad,” said Rua said via a translator at the post-fight press conference as transcribed by Sherdog. “In this weight class and heavyweight, when a punch lands, you feel it. But I’m gonna get through this loss and talk to my team and think about the future. Defeats always suck.”
“The punch landed clean and that’s when a knockout happens. He was happy to get it. I made a mistake.”
Saint Preux offered the view from the other side of the cage.
“Shogun comes in with looping punches and I’m pretty good at counter punches," OSP said to FOX Sports. "I did a real good step off. ... I used that and it ended up landing real good."
“I just threw the high kick just to let him know I could throw one and let him know it was there. I knew he was going to try to pressure me. He threw the inside leg kick. I was gonna check that, but he caught me real good with the inside leg kick. And I knew when he had me back up against the fence that he was gonna lunge in. When he lunged in for that hook, that’s when I countered, and I caught him pretty clean.”
Yes he did.
