    Reminds me that Teddy Atlas in his autobio wrote that when he was sacked by Donny Lalonde, he intended to shoot Lalonde.

    I've never particularly liked Teddy - I was appalled by his grandstanding with Michael Moorer. It looks like I was right.

    guys like shogun and wanderlei were from middle class and well off families. anderson was poor and black. his treatment back then is why he has such a chip on his shoulder.(maia,vitor)
    I can't say for certain if this was truly the case or not but I could understand where he is coming from. There seems to be a very "interesting" class/race divide in Brazil, to say the least. I'm sure some of our Brazilian members can chime in better on this. The only thing I can find is articles on the Internet.

    Two articles I found doing some random Google searching:

    http://www.zonalatina.com/Zldata309.htm

    http://www.economist.com/node/21543494

    It puts into perspective what A. Silva said to D. Maia in their fight:

    http://www.sherdog.net/forums/f2/sil...jitsu-1186569/

    It also puts the whole Jiu-Jitsu vs Luta Livre rivalry into perspective as well:

    http://martialarts.about.com/od/styles/a/lutalivre.htm

    Mind you, these are random Google articles and not in any way authoritative. But the info is out there.

    I recall an anthro article that noted that Brazilians have dozens of different racial terms to describe the "race" of a person, and that there's a notion in Brazil that its good to be a bit "mixed", but one generally aims to marry someone of lighter skin than their own.

    That's what those articles I linked hinted at as well. They discussed how, unlike in the States where, generally speaking of course, there are certain rigid categories that most identify with (Black, White, Hispanic, Asian, Native, etc). There appears to be such a large mixture that the spectrum is a lot wider. That said, what seems to be universal in these cases, is the darker the berry, the not-so-sweeter the quality of life.

    its sort of similair to native americans in america. alot of people will say they have indian or do have some degree but the life of actual/full indgenous people is indeed separate. Anderson's actions lead me to believe he was discriminated against hence " play body!" when he fought damien maia

    Silva brought the shotgun to give to Rafe. He wanted to make things more competitive.
