Dude, Brazil is lovely, but it is ghetto as **** as well. No secret there. When Big Nog said the Brazilians would kill Sonnen in the streets, I said "No ****". Some countries you don't want to fight in. Some countries you don't want to win in either. I knew someone who had a Muay Thai fight in the Phillipines, and he beat the guy he fought pretty bad. He was jumped with lead pipes after his fight and laid up in the hospital for about 6 months.
I mean, with as crazy as some countries get over soccer, this is no surprise to me....
In some countries, you are better off losing. Unless it is hosted by a large promotion like the ufc or Pride, these are places I would not fight in if I was a fighter.
and any of the third world countries.
I posted about a fight which was not sanctioned in which the judges' decision was over-ruled by the promoter. The victim of this crime was Hermes Franca.
