Marcos Rua

Mauricio and Murilo Rua are one of the most high profile siblings in MMA. And that duo is about to become a trio. Marcos Rua, 22, the younger brother of the high profile Brazilian fighters is set to follow in his older brothers footsteps when he makes his MMA debut in March at the latest.
The youngest and biggest Rua was supposed to debut this month for a Brazilian event, but that event was delayed until March according to his brother "Shogun" Rua.
Hes doing well, training tough and very focused," Rua told Tatame.com. "He would have fought at "The Glory" (a Brazilian event), but that was delayed until March. But we'd like to see him fighting before that."

Just found this a little bit ago.

If posted, sorry.

When I heard it I got really fucking excited.

im not excited because there was a thread i once saw.........Marco's nickname was not similar to that of Ninja and Shogun (I think it was like a Chinese nicknam) and it was rumoured that he wanted to be a.........DJ instead.

I think he's about 10 years younger than his brothers so maybe he just didn't fit in maybe?

Hmm, the Diaz Brothers win fights though. As much as i hate their antics, they prove it in the ring/cage.

Hopefully he'll be able to grow outside of his brothers' shadows. Must be tough for guys whose brothers are more high profile than them.

I actually don't mind their antics. I understand the importance of professionalism and such but at the end of the day what do they really do for a living? They fight. Certain people are going to react to a fight differently then others.

I think with the KJ Noons situation, he really felt like KJ was ducking him and the win was a fluke. If I trained my ass off for months and then lost a title fight due to a cut I'd be pretty pissed off too.

Shaolin would be an awesome nickname.

Nastyboy, whos that chick on your av?
