At the main event of UFC Fox Sports 1 on August 17, 2013, Chael Sonnen surprised the crowd with an explosive performance over former UFC light heavyweight champion Mauricio “Shogun” Rua. Sonnen was a slight underdog entering the fight, but his
BlueGrace Logistics sponsored Chael Sonnen during his big night as he tapped out Shogun in the first round with a guillotine choke in a dominant, one-sided performance. The loss was obviously devastating for Shogun, but Sonnen leaves the fight with multiple fight options.
Another major highlight from the fight, was when Sonnen called out “The Axe Murderer” for a fight during the post-fight recap with Joe Rogan by stating “Wanderlei Silva, six feet tall and 205 pounds, boy, until I met you, I didn’t know they could stack crap that high,” and ended it with “Wanderlei Silva, three months, you and the bad guy.”
BlueGrace is very excited for Chael Sonnen on his win and looks forward to his next fight, probably against Wanderlei Silva. BlueGrace Logistics was a proud, visible sponsor and can be seen in many of the pictures from the fight!
