Above is the audio of Wednesday's media call to promote UFC 139. Present on the call is former UFC light heavyweight champion Mauricio "Shogun" Rua and former Strikeforce light heavyweight champion Dan Henderson. Former middleweight champions Wanderlei Silva and Cung Le are also present.
All four men on the call appeared to be in high spirits and were respectful of their opponents. Henderson received the most attention and spoke at length about his desire to focus on Rua before looking ahead to possible title shots in the UFC's middleweight and light heavyweight divisions. While he indicated anything is possible, the 41-year-old appears focused on remaining in at 205-pounds. Said Henderson, "If I was to cut weight, there would be only one matchup I would do that for."
Speaking through a translator, "Shogun" echoed his opponent's focus. "I'm not thinking about fighting for the belt or what is next," he explained. "I'm only thinking about this fight."
UFC 139 will be held on November 19th at the HP Pavilion Center in San Jose, California. Full a complete rundown of the card, visit MMA Nation's UFC 139 fight card StoryStream.
