Shogun and Ninja’s brother, Marcos Rua, ready for MMA

Quote:

MMA is a sport for the whole family. If Maurício “Shogun” and Murilo “Ninja” already made their parents proud, they’ll have another reason to watch the MMA events. Marcos Rua, little brother of the former Pride fighters, is getting ready to make his first MMA fight. “He’s well, training tough and much focused. He would fight at The Glory, that would happen at January, but was delayed to March, but we want to see him fighting before”, said Shogun, who trains with the brothers at Universidade da Luta, at Curitiba.

I knew they had a younger bro that was training but didn't know anything about him. Wonder what his nickname is going to be...

His nickname is Shaolin.

Supposedly he is real lazy so I'm not sure what to expect but Ninja is lazy to and I'm a huge fan of him.

Can't wait to see him news about him is hard to find.

It'll be there as soon as I have a date of his debut.

If there were more pictures I would've already put together a sig challenge

Are you sure that's his nickname cause I saw that a while back and then found out Shaolin Rua was somebody else.

Edit: Was thinking of Vitor Shaolin Ribeiro, never mind...

No I'm 100% sure here is a interview with Pride where Ninja and Shogun mention Shaolin.

Quote:
Pride: Ninja, have you ever thought that Shogun was spoiled?
Ninja: No. It was our other brother, Shaolin, who was spoiled. (laughing)
Shogun: Ninja and Shaolin are always fighting. I always have to get between them and work it out. (laughing)

Ninja: Is that how it is? (laughing)

Pride: Do you give Shaolin an allowance from your fight money?
Shogun: We're always giving money to him. Shaolin will become rich some day. He gets money from me, from Ninja and from our parents.
