Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua and Brandon Vera had a battle for the ages on Saturday night.
Vera did a lot to silence critics and doubters - himself among them - who thought that his career was finished as a top-level competitor.
But he couldn’t do enough to get the stoppage and instead it was Rua who was able to find the finish in the fourth round after a gruelling fight which many were surprised to learn did not earn Fight of the Night.
