Mauricio "Shogun" Rua robbed at gunpoint by four men in Rio De Janeiro

Former Pride Middleweight Grand Prix and UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Mauricio "Shogun" Rua robbed at gunpoint by four men just outside of Rio De Janeiro

Mauricio Rua won’t forget his last trip to Rio de Janeiro.

The former UFC light heavyweight champion was in the "Marvelous City" with his sponsors earlier this month and decided to have dinner with his manager Eduardo Alonso, as well as fellow UFC fighter Demian Maia at Barra da Tijuca. Driving back to his hotel in Niteroi, a city located 25 miles away from Barra da Tijuca, "Shogun" was robbed by a four armed men.

"We were in Rio de Janeiro with Demain and we went to dinner with Mauricio at a restaurant," Alonso told PVT. "At the end of the night, he left us at the hotel at Barra da Tijuca and drove back to Niteroi, where he was staying. He was driving a friend’s car at Linha Vermelha and he was forced to stop by another guy with four men armed with rifles.

"They took his clothes, money and his friend’s car. They said ‘I know who you are, you’re a fighter. Don’t try anything.' It was a sad situation."

Rua had to walk from Linha Vermelha, one of the most dangerous expressways of the city, during the night.

"They took everything, even his shirt," he continued. "He was shoeless and shirtless. Imagine a guy at his size asking for a ride in the middle of the night. Nobody stopped to help him. He had to walk one mile to get to the police station. It was tense, but it’s all good now."

Nothing worse happened to "Shogun," as he provided assistance once he got to the police station.

The UFC light heavyweight, who recently underwent surgery for a broken nose, has no timetable for his return to the Octagon.

"We’re not sure when Mauricio will be cleared to fight," Alonso said, "so we will wait and see if anything interesting happens.

"I really wanted to watch a fight between Shogun and Rogerio ‘Minotouro’ (Nogueira). There are cards in Japan and in Brazil in September and that would make sense, but now that they matched Rogerio against Anthony Johnson, I don’t know what’s going to happen."
A real shame. I hope karma catches up to people like those who held up Shogun.

Troublesome forecast for the Olympics and World Cup...

I like MMA less because of this forum

I hope the four armed men get what's coming to them. It's no big macho shit when you're outnumbering the guy and have firearms.

Cowardice of the highest order!

I was really hoping to hear four people put to the hospital with their guns dismantled Steven Seagal style.

You realize the men who did this are thieves, don't you? This is what criminals do.

Oh don't worry I know what they do, that's why they are cowards they need a weapon to get what they want they don't have the stones to fist fight someone to rob them.

I left Rio 20 years ago. It's downhill since forever. This corrupt govern wants to keep producing dumb depended voters and creating these mega events like the World Cup or Olympics they have zero clue how to put together, instead of investing in the wellness of population.

Sadly, what happened to Shogun is routine in the major capital cities of Brazil. That's the reason I have escaped to the countryside of São Paulo State (not the town, another inferno) to live an easy going life.

I saw a docu on brazil having the highest crime rate per capita or something and they actually have a big line of cars made with bullet proof glass and windshields because of all the car jackings there. Brazil and Mexico really need a big cleanout of everyone in charge and at the top of those countries because both governments aren't doing shit and the crime lords run shit.
