I just found this in the Marco Ruas bio on Wikipedia.
"Fought Rickson Gracie, under Vale Tudo rules, in a gym at Rio de Janeiro. The fight, witnessed by several Luta Livre and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu students, ended in a draw."
Anyone know if this is true? If so, do you have anymore details.
I've been following this sport for over 12 years and this is the first time I've heard about this.
I remember Marco Ruas challenged Rickson to a fight in PRIDE that never materialized.
