Hopkins, we typically auction off gloves signed by MMA fighters (Dan Henderson, Bas Rutten, Werdum, etc.)

The charity is very real. The kids are great and we've gone to talk to them about fighting (right time and wrong time) and the auctions are our way of using our fighter contacts to help make the charity money.

As for what Renato signed, you have a point. I actually didn't know that's what all that mean. At the same time, it's within character for him and anyone who wins the auction will know that.

Personally I think Metamoris screwed up big time by not booking Bravo/Laranja.

I have zero interest in seeing Bravo/Royler again.

My assumption is they do not have the financial backing to meet Laranja's asking price.

I think we need to remember that even though Maestre Laranja is rough around the edges and his ways are foreign to us, deep down he cares, especially about the children.

Lets not forget his favela upbringing.

Thick, thanks for the support!

You bring up a great question. As a fan do you prefer having a single signed glove or a pair? I thought a pair was more fun and we'd do our best to match them up accordingly. For Team Quest the whole team signed, we did Eddie/Renato and in a few weeks we will post signed gloves by Josh Barnett and Randy Couture (thought it was cool since they fought).

Should we go with single gloves or pair?

Paring some would works out to sweeten the deal ..like the sokoudjou hendo. Most people won't jump on a soko glove an
conversely why buy a hendo glove when no only does this help charity it comes
with a team members... Still wish they were smaller gloves tho Phone Post 3.0

MTH -

Is Rhasaan Orange actually any good at BJJ?  Five minutes on YouTube didn't seem to answer the question for me . . . .

Seriously, is this guy actually any good?

The character is comical and all, but what are the actual skills of the actor? Is he like a Bravo black belt or just some dude that he smokes with?

Anybody seen him (or rolled with him) on the mat that actually knows? Phone Post 3.0
