Hopefully Ninja isnt teaching him the fine art of allowing guys to punch you in the face copious amounts of time.

bbjd, what's the scouting report on this kid (weight class, credentials, age, etc.)?

He must have the genetics, I mean before the Kharitonov fight Ninja was world class and is still a solid middleweight that just lacks defense. Shogun can still head back to the top

Honestly I got nothing Terry he is either a LHW or a HW because he is the biggest of the 3. But news on this guy is impossible to come by I've spent tons of time on Google looking for him and all you can find is little tid bits about him in interviews.

From what I gather he is very talented but is rather lazy. Although that was years ago so maybe he grew up.

Shaolin might have a very bright future he imght just be hyped because of his brother we won't know until he debuts.

Edit - Ok there still is almost no info on him however My guess would be he is fighting at LHW and that he's taking fighting more seriously now since this is what he used to look like



And this is the picture in the linked article

From the second pic, to me it looks like he will go to 185, he looks taller but Shogun looks allot bulkier (if that's a word) to me...

Ninja probably controlled the parts on the ground but decided to try and strike with Shaolin and then Shogun would have to pull Shaolin off him.

This is crazy, I can't believe there's a third Rua. If he's anything like his brothers we'll be in for a good debut.
