If you’re a professional mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter, all roads eventually lead to the Octagon.

That holds true for both Mauricio Rua and Brandon Vera, who square off this Saturday night (Aug. 4, 2012) in the main event of UFC on FOX 4, which emanates LIVE from the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.

Remember: will provide LIVE round-by-round, blow-by-blow coverage of the main card action on fight night, which is slated to air at 8 p.m. ET on the FOX network. The latest quick updates of the live action will begin to flow earlier than that around 5:00 p.m. ET with the “Prelims” bouts on FUEL TV.

Rua is hoping to get back into the light heavyweight title hunt and may earn the number one contender status with a convincing win over “The Truth,” who could cement his place among the top dogs at 205 pounds if he manages to upset “Shogun.”

See anything in the above “Road to the Octagon” video that makes an argument in either direction?
