Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua Vs James Te Huna Set For UFC Fight Night 33 In Australia

UFC Fight Night 33 in Australia on December 7th has itself a sturdy co-main event with Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua set to take on James Te Huna.

‘Shogun’ is coming off back-to-back losses against Alexander Gustafsson and Chael Sonnen so he’ll be viewing this as an opportunity to arrest that slide and prove he’s not past his best and still has a lot to offer in the UFC’s light-heavyweight division.

As for Te Huna, after a four fight winning streak he was submitted by Glover Teixeira back in May and ‘Shogun’ isn’t exactly an easy route for him to get back on track. However, he’ll have the home advantage and this could be a chance for him to really put himself on the global map with a victory over a legend of the sport.

UFC Fight Night 33 will be headlined by a heavyweight fight between Mark Hunt and Junior Dos Santos, and for a free Wednesday night card on FOX Sports 1 this looks like it’s shaping up to be a solid show.
