On Sunday, March 23, the UFC will host UFC Fight Night 38: Shogun vs. Henderson II from the Ginasio Nelio Dias in Natal, Rio Grande do Norte, Brazil.

In the night’s main event, MMA legends collide for a second time as former Pride and Strikeforce champion Dan Henderson faces former Pride Middleweight Grand Prix and UFC light heavyweight champion Mauricio “Shogun” Rua. The pair met previously at UFC 139 in 2011 in one of the greatest fights in the sport’s history. Henderson edged Rua on the scorecards after the five-round war. The two veterans have struggled since the epic battle, with Henderson dropping three straight bouts and the Brazilian Rua going 2-2.

Also on the main card, a number of Ultimate Fighter winners look to continue climbing the ladder in their respective divisions. TUF: Brazil winner Cezar Ferreira takes on fellow TUF alum C.B. Dollaway in the co-main event, while TUF: Smashes winner Norman Parke clashes with TUF: Brazil 2 winner Leonardo Santos.

The 12-fight event will kick off Sunday at 4 p.m. ET with two fights streaming on the promotion’s digital network, UFC Fight Pass. Four additional preliminary card bouts follow on Fox Sports 1 at 5 p.m. ET, with the six-fight main card airing live at 7 p.m. ET.

The MMA Corner’s Josh Davis, Jason Schielke and Justin Fuller break down the main card in the live stream above (held on Google Plus) starting at 10 p.m. ET.
