MMAWEEKLY goes one on one with Arona after he beat Wanderlei Silva and then lost to ‘Shogun’ in the Grand Prix finals.

Before the fight Arona said,”I’m going to prove why I’m in this place.” And prove he did, soundly beating Wanderlei Silva in the semi-finals then moving on to the Finals only to lose to the seemingly unbeatable Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua. In fact, Arona is the only fighter to defeat Wanderlei in years in their own weight class.
