UFC Sao Paulo: Watch “Shogun” Rua & Paul Craig Have Lengthy, Intense Face Off

Paul Craig is known for being pretty, pretty intense at ceremonial weigh-ins, and that didn't change today when he faced off with "Shogun" Rua.

“Shogun” Rua is unquestionably the biggest name Paul Craig has ever faced. But the light-heavyweight  didn’t seem fazed at all by the legend’s presence at today’s weigh-ins for UFC Sao Paulo, or the fact he’ll face the former champ in his native country.

Rua vs. Craig

Rua and Craig are going to battle in the co-headliner of Saturday’s event. The 37-year-old Rua (26-11) hasn’t fought since last December, when he took out Tyson Pedro. That victory followed Rua’s devastating, KO loss to Anthony Smith in July.

The 31 year-old Craig (12-4), meanwhile, submitted Vinicius Moreira Castro in September. Prior to that he was finished by Alonzo Menifield in June.

As you can see by watching the clip below, there was some serious mean mugging between the two at the ceremonial weigh-ins.
