The Oregonian has a new interview with UFC president with Dana White available. The article goes on to quote White as saying that Mauricio “Shogun” Rua will debut at UFC 76 on September 22 and that contract talks with Fedor Emelianenko are progressing.
Here’s an excerpt from the article:
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.”
