Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua lost for the second time in three fights at UFC on FOX 5, dropping a unanimous decision to rising contender Alexander Gustafsson. A fourth round TKO victory over Brandon Vera at UFC on FOX 4, put Shogun back on the winning track after losing a unanimous decision to Dan Henderson back in November of 2011, which is widely considered one of the greatest fights in MMA history.

Chael Sonnen fell short on winning UFC gold for the third time in three years, this time a first round TKO loss to the 205-pound champ, Jon Jones at UFC 159. Sonnen last tasted victory in January of last year with a controversial decision victory over Michael Bisping at UFC on FOX 2.
