Here is the video of one of my coaches in Vitor Shaolin's academy, Marcos "Loro" Galvao training for his ROC title fight today.
The reason his hair is bleached is because his nickname, LORO, actually means blonde in portugese. This time it came out a little gold, but thats ok because hes a baller.
Loro is on his way back up, after a loss in WEC last year. He is fighting a tough and undefeated kid named Ryan Vaccaro for the title in Ring Of Combat.
Also, teammate Danilo Cherman via Lions Den Connecticut is going to be fighting as well.
The second annual NYC MMA Expo was in full blast this year, i mean, well, maybe like 75% blast. The idea is great, venue is awesome, lots of big names, but something in the marketing must have been wrong because not that many people showed up. I was lucky enough to help out 2 years in a row for my school, Vitor Shaolin BJJ, and last year was more packed then this.
