Rampage Or Rashad? Shogun Doesn't Care Who's Next

The new UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Mauricio “Shogun” Rua knows that he'll get the winner of UFC 114's main event between Rampage Jackson and Rashad Evans, but who him, he doesn't care which one it is:

“We don't work so hard all year around, we have phases of training, it's like a cycle. My team always takes care of everything but definitely, it's going to be a new challenge for me to defend that belt, because it was a dream come true, I conquered it, and now I'm going to work on my mind to keep my motivation. It can be bad for me but I'm going to work hard so it doesn't affect my performances. I think Rampage [will win], but it's close to 50/50 to me. I'd say 55% for Rampage, 45% Rashad. To me Rampage or Rashad, it doesn't make a difference, they are both top fighters. But a fight against Rampage would be good … for the pay-per-view. I'm a professional fighter, I never pick my opponents, I'd fight anyone. Anderson (Silva) can be a big challenge to my career, but I'm used to them.”Props: Riddum.com
