    It should come as no surprise if this is true and Shogun Rua is retired. After he lost to Craig, Rua released a statement detailing the injuries he had going into the fight. He also planned on discussing his fighting future with his family.


    “I want to thank all the amazing support from you guys, as always. I’m blessed for being able to do this for 18 years already, and here in 2020 you guys are the great motivation I carry with me, and that it makes me continue this far. Now I’m going to rest with my family, and think about my career. I know that my mission in this sport goes way beyond the octagon as well. Thanks a lot guys,” part of the statement read.

    What was your favorite Shogun Rua fight?

    Should have retired 5 or 6 yrs ago. He's been completely washed up for quite a while.

    Rua's demolition of Rampage Jackson showed how good he was when prime.

    Along with Overeem. He was a confident beast in his prime who believed he could beat anyone on any given night.
