Murilo "Ninja" Rua

Murilo "Ninja" Rua

This young Brazilian talent has quickly shot up the ranks and is now recognized as one of the best fighters in his weight class. Another awesome striker from the Chute Boxe Academy in Brazil (which includes Wanderlei Silva), Murilo Rua is ferocious in the ring. "Ninja" can terrorize his opponents with endless strikes from all angles, but if there is an opening he is more than capable of slipping in a sneaky submission. The scariest part about Rua is that he is one of the youngest fighters in the PRIDE FIGHTING CHAMPIONSHIPS, yet he already displays technical skill well beyond his years.
