Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua looked like his younger self at UFC Fight Night 33, knocking out James Te Huna just 1:03 in to the opening round. The win halted a two-fight losing streak, including a decision loss to Alexander Gustafsson and a submission defeat to Chael Sonnen.

Dan Henderson was supposed to get a title shot against Jon Jones after his epic five round war decision victory over Mauricio Rua in November of 2011, but an injured forced him out of the bout and kept him on the sidelines for over a year. Since his return, Henderson has lost three-straight fights, two split decision defeats to Lyoto Machida and Rashad Evans, along with a knockout loss to Vitor Belfort.
