Murilo ‘Ninja’ Rua has turned down a fight at DREAM 12 in Japan because he is helping his brother Shogun (Mauricio Rua) prepare for his title shot against Lyoto Machida in the UFC.

Like his light-heavyweight brother, middleweight Ninja was a star of PRIDE FC but lost his way somewhat after the organisation folded. But his last outing was a return to form, as he KO’d Alex Stiebling in 45 seconds at Bitetti Combat in Brazil last month.

"I would fight, but I better not because I am helping my brother for his fight in the UFC," Ninja told Tatame. "He is well, very focused, and goes in search of victory."
