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

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

Fuckkkking hell. These guys are so desperate to get money for there own purposes they fail to see how much incidents like this are damaging the reputation of there country with the Olympics and World Cup coming round the corner. Atrocious, pathetic excuses for human beings.

One man works so hard at one thing in his life becomes a world champion and starts to go downhill in his career and assholes really kick him when he's down.

I hope Karma bites them all on the ass somehow/someway.

Being a guy that has been robbed at knifepoint I can tell you how scary that shit is. Your stomach drips and you literally feel sick from head to toe.

I hope those punk motherfuckers are found and shot on the spot. Street Justice is the only kind I wanna see for these fools.

Bunch of cowards...

Can't believe we're having upcoming olympic and world cup events there, it's simply not a civilized country worthy of these events. Until they can lower their crime/murder rates and not have headlines about decapitated soccer refs being a cultural norm, they really don't deserve to be treated like a first-world country.

Happens everywhere boys.

Wonder how often this happens in California and Michigan? But we dont hear about it. I feel worse for the people who cant afford to lose their vehicle or clothes, as much as I respect shogun.

On a positive note, Shogun is very used to walking around without a shirt or shoes. Taking his clothes probably made it more likely he would KTFO those idiots. All he needed was some hand wraps and an opening.
