When illness or any other kind of physical impediment afflicts one of its own, the Brazilian mixed martial arts community puts aside rivalries and unites in exemplary solidarity. Such is the case with Will Ribeiro. The WEC fighter, wheelchair-bound after being seriously injured in a motorcycle accident in December, was recently able to attend an event at the Nogueira Training Center and continues to receive tremendous support from all within the Brazilian MMA community-fighters, promoters, trainers, and fans.

Geez, when I first saw the thread title I thought it was something regarding "Shaolin" Ribeiro, thankfully that wasn't the case and there wasn't another accident. But its still a tragic turn of events for Will and everyone involved with him. Hopefully he will walk again soon
