Default Re: Brazillian fighters

It's a cultural thing, or at least was, in that it was accepted much earlier, which allowed for the formation of top teams which allow for great fighters.

And I would have to disagree with it about them being poor, most of the fighters from brazil come from a decent to wealthy background, which allows them to train in BJJ and then Vale Tudo. BJJ guys are considered "playboys" in Brazil, there are of course exceptions, but they generally aren't liked much by the poorer people as they are kind of arrogant.
