The Amazon! When Master Alves invited me to go I jumped at the chance I had always wanted to go there. Like most ignorant gringos the first time I can to Brazil I thought I would make it up there, no problem.
Well if you have been paying any attention to this event, you noticed something is different than the last two events. The promoter dropped the name - Luta-Livre - from the promotions. The promoter Mario Miglioli said: - "I wanted to make an event where all fighters from Grappling / Submission would show up to fight. If I left the name Luta-Livre, Jiu Jitsu would not show up to the event. The plan worked. This time we got 68% Jiu Jitsu fighters and 32% of Luta-Livre fighters".
