I'm pretty sure he signed with M-1 when they got Fedor, but i havn't herd anything else since then.

He's probably just all pissed off that noone else will let him use his uber roids and has to wait for Dream to open a heavy/ light heavy GP

If you look at the way he fights (aggression and explosiveness) and compare his physique to most Brazilians (except Assuerio) you can see some stuff that makes sense. Plus in Japan roids aren't illegal. Anyway, thats just what I hear and it makes enough sense to me.

Paulo Filho looks almost identical to Arona...Wow that to me made no sense at all to say out of most brazilian's he has a different physique so thats a reason for suspecting...lol wild thought.

Yea lets not get into the Pride/Japan Steroid debate.

Id like to see Affliction Pick up Arona, if they match him against tito in the next event (which i believe tito will be apart of) then that would be another great addition and i doubt he acts for that much.

Agreed.

No way dude. Arona is quite a bit bigger than Filho.Wouldn't you agree?


As for the real topic, i've been wondering the same thing lately. Guy has a ton of potential so it's a shame he's not out there showcasing his talent.

On a side note, does anyone else think Arona got screwed out of the decision against Fedor?
