Top 10 middleweight 'shark' warns Shogun Rua: Don't drop to 185, because we'll eat you up

Gary A. Vasquez-US PRESSWIRE

If there's one thing I love about Tim Kennedy, it's his subtlety.

The No. 7-ranked middleweight issued a dire warning to struggling light heavyweight striker, Mauricio Rua, after the Brazilian teased a possible drop down to 185 pounds. The same division that houses monsters like Yoel Romero, Luke Rockhold and of course, Kennedy himself.

Was that a thinly-veiled challenge?

After capturing the light heavyweight strap back in 2010, Rua (22-10) failed to find consistency in the 205-pound division, which prompted UFC President Dana White to call for a trip south. "Shogun" hasn't ruled it out, but remains non-committal after getting creamed by Ovince St. Preux last weekend in Brazil.

So how about it, fight fans, bad idea?
