Marco Ruas Out For 3 Weeks

By Eduardo Alonso

Marco Ruas Out for 3 Weeks

      As previously reported, UFC legend Marco Ruas suffered an injury to his hand this past week. FCF contacted the Ruas Vale Tudo team and Marco will have to immobilize his hand and be forced to stay out for training for three weeks, therefore he’s officially out of the August UFO event. Ruas injured his hand in training while taking down a sparring partner. During the takedown the veteran fighter landed with his hand in a bad position and injured his hand. Ruas will stay in Brazil for a few more days to rest, be with his family and spend some more time with the Ruas Vale Tudo team before returning to the USA. This could, and probably would, be Marco’s retirement fight so now the whole team and Marco himself want him to do one more fight after his hand is recovered so an NHB legend like him won’t end his career in an unfortunate incident like this. FCF wishes a speedy recovery to Marco.
