On October 13, 2012, we saw one of the greatest fighters on the planet completely destroy Stephan Bonnar in the headline fight at UFC 153. Though that fight in itself was a nice little treat for fight fans, it was a result of a super fight falling through, a bout that was supposed to feature Jose Aldo defending his featherweight crown against Frankie Edgar.

Now, as reported by Brazilian website clicrbs, that matchup is being sought out yet again by the UFC, and it is likely for UFC 156 in Brazil.

Details on the event have yet to emerge, but it is expected to be a major Brazilian show in a high-profile city. The event is likely to occur in January of 2013. So far, Aldo vs. Edgar has been the only bout rumored for the card, but seeing how great recent Brazilian cards have been, I'd expect it to fill out quickly.

I wish they would have the fight somewhere else. Frankie has a legit chance at winning here and if he does I don't want him to get shot.

Chill man, UFC is huge in Brazil just like soccer, you don't see soccer team's getting shot for winning.

Didn't mean anything? lol

Right..... I'm sure he would say the same thing about Canadians or Brits. Suggesting that a nationality would shoot someone because he beat their nation's fighter is totally normal.

Ill be rooting for Frankie but I personally think Aldo destroys Frankie, and if he does it will be hard for me to watch

This fight is fantastic. I think Aldo will take it, but clearly you can never count Frankie out. My only issue is trying to figure out what Frankie will do if he loses. Will he stay at FW and try it again? Will he move back up to LW and try that again? Or will he drop to BW? The latter isn't even a joke, in an interview he said he could make BW.

No not the teams...Brazil Soccer Violence Concerns Officials
"Murad conducted a study a few years ago that showed that more than 40 people were killed in connection with Brazilian soccer matches between 1999 and 2009."

Also, to clarify TeamDey didn't make a racism, Brazilian is not a race...not sure why that needs to be explained.

Well to be honest in Colombia drug dealers killed a Colombian star soccer player for the accidental goal...From a cultured standpoint the two countriers are very similar and face the same problems of drugs and crooked governments...

To compare Canada or Britain who we are staunch allies of to Brazil is ridiculous....

Where do you feel more safe? In Brazil watching a soccer match or Canada watching CFL/or even Britain watching soccer I would feel more safe and they are almost just as crazy...

At the last event a brazilian tried to flaty out steal a hat off wagner Prados head....Id say theres quite a difference if people cant see it take off your blinders...

TeamDey's comment is not racist. People need to really start understanding the meaning of these types of words before haphazardly calling someone or their comments racist. That term can cause unjust damage if not used correctly. Racist/Racism is a hatred towards another race, a belief ones race is superior or a policy put in place against a race. Also, as Airkerma pointed out, Brazillian is a culture not a race. Now if you want to call his comment prejudice, you would be correct as it pertains towards a negative stereotype.

There is a big, big difference between racist and prejudice.

Well to clarify I never said Brazillians wouldn't get pissed and beat the piss out of one another, I was just clarifying Fankie wouldn't get shot.

Very true, you did not, and that is a fair point. I was mainly trying to illustrate that it wasn't blind prejudice on DEY's part, there is a bit of history regarding some actions taken by some of their fan groups over the years. Obviously nothing is yet linked to MMA, but I feel that DEY was jumped at a bit more than deserved.

Frankie wont be winning anyway so we don't have to worry about a Rio Riot.

I don't think they would shoot Frankie if he won but if it was a boring fight and Frankie won a bullshit decision I could see a Riot happen, it has happened before at MMA events in Brazil.

I didn't bother. I was readying a rather detailed argument to refute him. I settled on a single sentence instead.
