I do not think I was the only one that thought Mauricio “Shogun” Rua was the favorite in this fight. The former champ fell to a fighter in Chael Sonnen that had not won a UFC fight at light-heavyweight and was seen by many as more of a middleweight. Still, the nasty guillotine that he got put in has sent him down the ladder as far as rankings. This is just a wild guess, but as a guy who never had an abundance of muscle tone, a drop in weight class could be a possibility. Mandatory Credit: Gary A. Vasquez-US PRESSWIRE
