Well finally blaf has confirmed the entrance of shogun to the ufc. I enjoy his comment about shogun being so marketable, yet before they purchased pride when he was asked about shogun, I think on fox, he said nobody knows who the hell he is. If hes marketable (and one only needs to watch pride usa ppv) it should not be hard to get fans to take notice. Either way I was always a pride fan and am glad to see him in the ufc, I want people to recognize him, and I want to see him fight the top guys.
Here is the quote and link to the article.
Add UFC news: 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.
"He's signed and ready to roll," White said. "You couldn't meet a classier guy in your whole life. He will be so marketable."
