PostSubject: Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua on reason for leaving ChuteBoxe camp   Sun 23 Dec 2007, 9:59 pm



“My brother [Ninja] left the team last week and there is no way I remain in a team my brother does not belong. I own him my career. It is because of him I became a professional fighter. He brought fighting to my family. My idea is to stay in Brazil, in Curitiba. So far I don’t want to move to US and I am trying to convince Murilo to stay too…. Id like to open a gym in Curitiba … maybe this January. I’ve been searching for places and growing the idea stronger. But after that I have to focus on UFC. I fight again in March and I need to train harder and harder for my next fight.”
– UFC light heavyweight Mauricio “Shogun” Rua talks with MMARingReport.com about the reason behind his recent departure from the famed ChuteBoxe mixed martial arts academy in Brazil. Shogun and his brother, Murilo “Ninja” Rua, follow in the footsteps of of other big name fighters to leave the camp of late such as Wanderlei Silva and Andre Dida. In the interview Shogun reveals that he can return to action as soon as March … and would like to challenge a big draw such as Tito Ortiz.
