Legends of Vale Tudo and Mixed Martial Arts don’t get much bigger than the two iconic Chute Boxe fighters Ninja Murilo Rua and Wanderlia Silva. Ninja Rua who won the Elite XC Middleweight Championship was a veteran of PRIDE FC, and Cage Rage long before his younger brother Mauricio Shogun Rua became UFC Champion.
Wanderlia Silva a legend in Brazilian Vale Tudo captured the IVC tournament championship before becoming PRIDE FC Middleweight Champion. Both fighters known for their aggressive styles helped make Chute Boxe Vale Tudo the world’s premier gym in the late 1990’s early 2000’s.

Looking to support the younger generation of athletes the two legends made an appearance at NCF 6 to watch Champion Matheus Henrique Correia defend his belt against Maicon Bruno in the main event as RIZIN FF Veteran Alison Vicente loses a decision to Kleberson Tavares.
