Former "The Ultimate Fighter" contestant, Jeremy May, is set to take on Ninja Rua for Impact MMA in New Zealand on July 3rd for the new promotion, Impact MMA.
MMA Recap has learned from sources close to the fighters' camps that Jeremy May will take on Murilo "Ninja" Rua at Impact FC's first show on July 3rd. The event takes place in Aukland, New Zealand.
May last competed at "Ruckus Entertainment: Ruckus 2" in March where he defeated Chris Albandia by triangle choke in the first round. Prior to the March event, May defeated Casey Stillman with a devastating knockout in just forty seconds.
Ninja, the younger brother to "Shogun" Rua will be competing at Shine Fights on May 15. Ninja has won his last two fights, both by knockout. Rua has made it clear that he hopes adding a couple more wins to his record will allow him to compete in the UFC.
Both fighters have agreed to the bout and have signed the contract for the middleweight contest. The July 3rd show is one of three shows to be held by Impact FC in the month of July with the second and third shows happening on July 10 and July 17.
