Another top heavyweight leaves Pride FC for the UFC. Rua is regarded as one of the strongest light heavyweights in the world. The Chutebox website announced the news stating that Rua could possibly make his debut at UFC 72 in Belfast Northern Ireland.

Mauricio â“‚¬Å“Shogunâ“‚¬Â Rua has signed a contract with the UFC and may participate in UFC 72.

UFC 72 has been getting a lot of press on how week the fight card is. This deal would add a major player to the card and give it some validity. Rua could also be one of the next contenders for Chuck Liddell assuming he defeats Rampage Jackson at UFC 71. Rua has notable victories over top opponents such as Quinton “Rampage” Jackson, Kevin Randleman, Ricardo Arona and Antonio Rogerio â“‚¬Å“Minotoroâ“‚¬Â Nogueira. Rua is an amazing BJJ fighter that will be a nice addition to the UFC light heavyweight division.
