With Saturday night’s historic showdown between Cain Velasquez and new champion Junior dos Santos in the rear-view mirror, the MMA world’s attention will now turn to the war for light heavyweight contendership between former title-holders Dan Henderson and Mauricio Rua at UFC 139.
Henderson and Rua are set to scrap in San Jose next weekend as part of huge lineup featuring fights like Wanderlei Silva vs. Cung Le, Martin Kampmann vs. Rick Story, and Urijah Faber vs. Brian Bowles.
With less than a week to go the UFC has released a nine-minute preview for the event featuring Henderson and Rua discussing their main event match-up, as well as Le and Silva reflecting on their road each has traveled to get to UFC 139.
“My biggest dream is getting the belt back but right now I’m focused on beating Dan Henderson,” the dynamic Brazilian explains, with Henderson saying he is also focused purely on the moment in front of him and not what comes after the bout’s conclusion.
