“Shogun” Rua lays out retirement plans


Speaking to MMA Fighting this week, the former champion explained that he’d like to fulfill the final three obligations on his current UFC contract. Once that’s done, he’ll sit down with his team and family, and decide whether he should continue fighting or hang up the gloves.

“I plan on ending this contract with the UFC, I have three more fights, and when it’s over, I’ll take a break and talk to my family and my team and see what I’ll do,” Shogun said. “I want to fight as soon as possible. I was talking to Eduardo (Alonso) yesterday about that. I have a goal. I want to fight again this year, maybe December, and then we’ll see what happens.”

“I want to end this contract and then I think I’ll probably stop,” he added. “I don’t know. I’ll analyze it with my family and my team, everybody.”
