In some late breaking information from ESPN’s Franklin McNeil, UFC light heavyweight challenger Mauricio “Shogun” Rua is reportedly coming into tonight’s main event with an injured knee.

While appearing on ESPN2’s ‘MMA Live’ to preview UFC 113 , McNeil says that although he was appraised of the situation with Rua’s knee, he’s unsure as to how it actually affected his training camp heading into his rematch with Lyoto Machida tonight.

Obviously McNeil is unable to give his source but it was credible enough for him to report during tonight’s preshow on ESPN2.

Rua is looking to not only looking to win the UFC light heavyweight title but he’s also hoping to avenge his controversial unanimous decision loss at UFC 104 this past October.

As it stands, “Shogun” is currently (+160) according to oddsmakers so it’ll be interesting to see how much the line actually changes as it gets closer to fight time.
