Kid Peligro Jiu-Jitsu News . . . The return of the "BIG DOG"!!!
Submitted by: Kid Peligro / Sr Editor
Posted on : 7/5/2007


The "Big Dog", "Cachorrao" Almeida returns to the ring! After a long hiatus, the exciting and dynamic Ricardo "Cachorrao" Almeida has signed to fight in the Cage Fury Fight Championships. Since his retirement Almeida had several offers from IFL and Bodog Fighting but he finally settled for Cage Fury 5. Almeida returns to the rings on September 28th in Atlantic City, NJ, at the famous Taj Mahal Casino. Cachorrao was super excited: "I am glad to be fighting in my backyard. I can promise you we are going to Rock the Taj Mahal. My fans will be there and I'll be there to deliver the excitment I'm known for!"

Cachorrao faces the tough Dennis Halman in his return. More on this in the next few days!

Why did he retire



to focus on teaching, he runs a renzo gracie affiliate in NJ.. consequences of fighting outweighed the benefits at the time.. watch his fight against akira shoji in PRIDE, it was a war
