The third and youngest Rua brother is set to follow in the footsteps of his siblings. Twenty-two year old Marcos Rua, the younger brother of Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua and Murilo ‘Ninja’ Rua, is set to make his MMA debut in Brazil sometime in the near future.

Although youngest, he is the tallest of the three light heavyweights. Marcos, who currently has no nickname, was set to fight in ‘The Glory’ (a Brazilian MMA promotion) this month, but the event has been postponed until March.

“He’s well, training tough and very focused,” Mauricio Rua told Tatame. “He was due to fight at The Glory in January, but it was delayed to March. But we want to see him fighting before then.”
