Everyone stumbles. Everyone falls. Often at times, people will tend to remember the more negative aspects of life’s trials and tribulations, rather than the moments that really define someone. Those moments, which test a man’s vigor and character are the type of things that Vitor Ribeiro has had to overcome.
Once widely recognized as one of the top lightweights in the world, the Nova Uniao product has had some dramatic changes in his life occur just in the past year and a half alone. After suffering his first loss in a near three-year stretch, to Gesias "JZ" Cavalcante, Ribeiro had sustained an eye injury during the fight, which would later require retinal surgery. LINK
