Mauricio "Shogun" Rua has been alternating wins and losses since he defeated Chuck Liddell in April 2009.
He will look for his first two-fight win streak since then when he faces a tough Swede in Alexander Gustafsson.
It has been a tough road for Shogun in the UFC. After sporting a 12-1 record in PRIDE and winning the 2005 PRIDE Middleweight Grand Prix, he has gone 5-4, but it hasn't been all bad, considering his reign as UFC Light-heavyweight champion.
Gustafsson isn't one to back down from, as he is on a five-fight win streak and has only lost once in his 15 professional MMA bouts to date.
Gustafsson has a chance to make a name for himself by defeating a legend and a top-five light-heavyweight, moving him much closer to a future title opportunity.
But he won't...and here's why.
