Mauricio and Murilo Rua have both decided to leave the Chute Boxe camp in Brazil in order to open their own gym in the United States.
The news was announced on Chute Boxe’s official website earlier today.
The new gym will opened in an undisclosed location in Massachusetts according to Sherdog’s Gleidson Venga.
Rudimar Fedrigo, the head of Chute Boxe, stated that the Rua’s will always be welcomed back in the future if the situation ever arises:
“We have to remember that the Chute Boxe doors will always be open for them. We also wish them good luck in their new endeavors.”
2007 has been a horrible year for the team that was once considered one of the best in the world. Both Wanderlei Silva and Andre Dida left earlier this year to train with different teams in North America.
