02:35 PM ET 05.10 | Shogun Rua wasn't going to let a "burst appendix" stop him from a rematch with Lyoto Machida at UFC 113. "I had burst my appendix two months before the fight. I recall that my team would rather I didn???t fight at the time, they wanted to rest but I said no. I was almost a month without training, in order to heal up. I had to undergo surgery but I still managed to finish the camp - and the outcome was great," Rua said.
