The duel between Paulo Filho and Murilo “Ninja” Rua brought light to Pride’s ring in 2006, and they will meet again. PVT confirmed the rematch for Iron Man of June 7th, and Fred Fondes, Paulo’s manager, confirmed it to TATAME.

“Our contract is already signed. Now it’s about Murilo, but I guess everything is already settled”, reveals Filho.

For this bout, Fred also affirmed Paulo is very excited about fighting Rua and might be assisted by Josuel Distak on his preparation, same coach he had when fought at Pride and WEC.

“Paulo is very excited and has been training a lot. He like these fights and gets excited about the opportunity. He also said he will have Distak’s support for this fight”.

Paulo Filho and Murilo Ninja fought in 2006, on the extinct Pride Bushido. Paulo got the win and years later he became a WEC champion.
