After the fight, Paul Craig told the media personals that he is willing to fight Shogun again in a rematch.

The next step is, there’s rumors that UFC Glasgow’s going to happen. That’d be my hometown. If I did that in a two-week fight camp, what can I do in an eight-week fight camp? So is there any opportunity to face Shogun Rua again? Only he’d be able to tell you that, because I would take that fight in a heartbeat. Going with how his face looked after that fight, I can’t see him accepting that fight,” Craig said.

It didn’t take much longer for Shogun to accept the fight and said that he is more than willing to fight Craig in his hometown of Glasgow.

He’s already been talking about a rematch. I don’t know where. I’ll accept it. I think that we deserve a rematch for this fight. I don’t think this was resolved. With all due respect to him, he’s a great athlete, and that’s it,” Rua said.

I would accept (a rematch) if Paul accepts it. If the UFC wants it, I would accept it. I think we deserve a rematch for this fight. For sure (I’d go to Glasgow) to fight him. We just gotta look at the dates, but if my team says okay, I’ll definitely go out there.”

Do you guys want to see the rematch?
