Light Heavyweights ‘Shogun’ Rua, Tyson Pedro to Clash at UFC Fight Night 142 in Adelaide
A light heavyweight contest pitting Mauricio Rua
against Tyson Pedro
has been added to the UFC
Fight Night 142 lineup.
Multiple outlets have confirmed the booking following an initial
report from ESPN.com.
UFC Fight Night 142 takes place at Adelaide Entertainment Center in
Adelaide, Australia on Dec. 1 and will also include a heavyweight
showdown between Junior dos
Santos and Tai
Rua had a three-fight winning streak snapped in a first-round
knockout loss to Anthony
Smith at UFC Fight Night 134 on July 22. Prior to that,
“Shogun” had posted successive triumphs over Gian
Anderson and Antonio
Rogerio Nogueira. The former UFC light heavyweight champ is 9-9
during his promotional tenure and 25-11 as a pro.
After beginning his Octagon career with two straight wins, Pedro
has dropped two of his last three. The 27-year-old Sydney native
last appeared at UFC Fight Night 132, where he was submitted in the
opening stanza by Ovince St.
