Murillo "Ninja" Rua VS Ricki Fukuda

Looks like Ninja found an opponent for his Dream appearance since Yoon pulled.

I've only seen Fukuda fight one time in EliteXC, if that performance is any indacation to Fukuda's skillset than Ninja should have this one in the bag.

Here's the info.

Quote:
The event will air via tape-delay on HDNet and features the opening round of the DREAM welterweight grand prix as well as the final bout from DREAM’s featherweight grand prix opening round.

Riki Fukuda has agreed to fight fellow middleweight Murilo “Ninja” Rua on just one days notice after his scheduled opponent, Dong Sik Yoon, was forced out of their bout due to an undisclosed injury.

You know after seeing how bad Shogun has looked and with him and Ninja training together Im really tempted to bet against Ninja.

I'll go with Ninja on this one. I don't know enough about Fukuda to bet against Rua. Hopefully in this fight we can see the "good" Ninja

Thats the only thing really stopping me, I dont know much about Fukuda but to be honest Ninja has never been overly impressive and has never been anythin more than a decent gate keeper, I mean Ninja has fought alot of great fighters but he lost to all of them when he was at his best, if he has declined as rapidly as Shogun or even close then he will be losing to second rate fighters.
