Shogun Rua not retiring, eyes Octagon return at UFC Fight Night 51 in Japan
With the broken nose suffered at the hands of Dan Henderson almost healed following surgery, "Shogun" eyes a comeback fight in "The Land of the Rising Sun" later this year.

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight champion Mauricio Rua isn't ready to call it a career just yet.
Despite the setbacks, Eduardo Alonso, Rua's manager, informed UFC Tonight that "Shogun" isn't ready to call it quits and eyes a return to action this September following successful nose surgery.

Furthermore, Mauricio hopes to make his comeback in Japan when UFC returns to "The Land of the Rising Sun" this fall with a UFC Fight Night 51 event that features a heavyweight slugest between Mark Hunt and Roy Nelson. With a large Japanese fan base acquired during his dominant run with PRIDE FC, it would be a homecoming of sorts.
