Yeah he was living here for a few years. I always thought there was a good newspaper article waiting to be written about the Brazilian fighting legend living here, especially after UFC took off.

Pele:  "there was some uproar about the 2nd one but i scored a knockdown in the 4th rd i won in the first fight i didnt ko him but i put on a good sho in the 2nd fight he was definitly better but not by much i rushed him and turned it into a brawl i was te king of the gym so it wasnt right that he stepped into my house the 2nd fight drew a big crowd and they saw he had muay thai fit for a champion there were some boos when i knocked him down i was relieved but he got up at the count of 8 and toughed it out for another round i clinched and held on to him and as soon as it ended i raised my hand victory was mine" Him and Wandy ko'd eachother at same time asked about his memory of the IVC days and he says the smell of blood 4 or 5 days later he just couldnt get rid of it no matter how much he washed it off chute boxe and theCarlson Gracie team/ btt were the best his most feared weapon his knees he lefy Cuba at 6 and came to Brazil at 7 his father was a 5 time state boxing champion a pro since he was 15
