Report: Rua passes exam by neurosurgeon

According to the Wrestling Observer, Murilo “Ninja” Rua has passed an examination that was administered by a neurosurgeon at UCLA.

Rua had been scheduled to fight Joey Villasenor for the vacant EliteXC middleweight title on the undercard of Friday’s Frank Shamrock vs. Phil Baroni main event. However, the match was canceled after Rua was unable to get approved for a license in California last week.

Despite being cleared by the UCLA neurosurgeon, it’s unlikely that he’ll still get a ruling on any kind of appeal to CSAC in time for Friday’s card.
