FOX SPORTS 1 FEATURES REMATCH OF ONE OF UFC'S GREATEST BOUTS AT UFC(R) FIGHT NIGHT: SHOGUN VS. HENDERSON 2

Sonnen and Florian Serve as Analysts on UFC FIGHT NIGHT on FOX Sports 1

LOS ANGELES, CA - The Ultimate Fighting Championship(R) (UFC(R)) returns to Brazil for UFC FIGHT NIGHT: SHOGUN VS. HENDERSON 2 live on FOX Sports 1 and FOX Deportes on Sunday, Mar. 23 (7:00 PM ET), headlined by a five-round light heavyweight rematch of former UFC light heavyweight champion and current No. 7-ranked Shogun Rua (22-8) versus former Strikeforce(R) Champion and No. 8-ranked Dan Henderson (29-11). Their first bout at UFC 139 in 2011 was considered one of the greatest UFC fights of all time, with "Hendo" scoring a five-round unanimous decision victory.

"It was what I would call a slobber-knocker," says UFC announcer Joe Rogan of their first fight. "It was a fight that just went back and forth. One guy was rocked. The other guy was rocked. Dan Henderson almost had Shogun out in the first rounds. By the end of the night, Shogun was mounted on Henderson, dropping bombs on him. The crowd was on its feet. They're two championship caliber fighters and former champions. It was about as good a fight as you could ever ask for. And they're going to do it again. I expect nothing short of what they did the first time."

The UFC FIGHT NIGHT main card also features a middleweight bout between The Ultimate Fighter Brazil season one winner Cezar Ferreira (8-2) and CB Dollaway (14-6). Plus two more The Ultimate Fighter finalists, Leonardo Santos (12-4) and Norman Parke (20-2), square off in a lightweight battle. Fabio Maldonado (20-6) takes on Gian Villante (11-4) in a light heavyweight matchup, while lightweights Michel Prazeres (17-1) and Mairbek Taisumov (21-4) face each other. Featherweights Rony Jason (14-4) and Steven Siler (23-11) kick off the main card.

Jon Anik and Brian Stann call the matchups live from Natal, Brazil, while veteran combat sports journalist Karyn Bryant hosts the show from the FOX Sports 1 studios in Los Angeles, with analysts Kenny Florian and UFC light heavyweight Chael Sonnen. Heidi Androl interviews fighters in Brazil.

Coverage of UFC FIGHT NIGHT begins Wednesday, March 19 (7:00 PM ET) on FOX Sports 1 with the UFC TONIGHT, with hosts Florian and Sonnen previewing the fights. Bryant interviews Henderson before the epic rematch, while Insider Ariel Helwani adds additional reports.

The UFC WEIGH-IN SHOW airs Saturday, March 22 (3:00 PM ET) on FOX Sports 2 with Bryant, Sonnen and Florian in studio as the 24 fighters attempt to make weight. Androl interviews fighters during the show.
