Shogun Rua is a legend in the sport of MMA. Rua is a product of the famed Chute Boxe Academy and his brutal full blast muay thai style served him well while in Pride, and when he eventually moved on to the UFC. The man is 38 years old and made his debut in the UFC way back in 2007 at UFC 76.  The Brazillian has some of the most vicious striking to have ever graced the light heavyweight division of the UFC and is a former champion as a result. Shogun holds spectacular finish wins over some absolute legends and Hall of Famers. And Rua is still very dangerous today, all these years later with his last finish coming against Tyson Pedro in 2018.
