Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua and Murilo ‘Ninja’ Rua will soon move from being a double act to being part of a trilogy.

Their younger brother Marcos Rua is set to make his mixed martial arts debut in Brazil sometime in the coming months.

Imagine how good he could be, Ninja and Shogun didnt have half the training regimines that Marcos has today and the game has changed dramatically even since 2000-2002 when they both started.

Give this guy a year before we make any assumptions but with the Rua name your bound to have some serious skills and get as much attention as the Gracie name.

that's interesting that it says he doesn't have a nickname because I had already heard him referred to as ronin, I think by more than one person. I'm guessing if he doesn't have a name that's what they'll call him.

He'll be a big 205er. I'm hoping the Rua's get better in the order of their age, then Marco's will be an absolute monster lol.

I noticed the age thing as well, Marco also looks the leanest of the three.....let's hope for the best.
