Muay Thai vs. Capoeira
I be doing research on all the MMA events that occurred. I came across this gem on the Chute Boxe Twitter page:
A few months before the first UFC, a Chute Boxe team consisting of MMA striking legend Pele, Anderson Silva murder target Rafael Cordeiro, Gilbert Yvel shank victim Fabio Piemonte, and journeyman Nilson de Castro took on a bunch of Capoeira pussies inside the Vale Tudo ring. The capo guys eschewed their usual fancy kicking strategies for the much more effective method of repeatedly attempting to throw their opponents out of the ring. Despite this logical approach to combat, the Chute Boxe guys won every match.
Long fist beats low kick.
Dead on balls accurate.
What's up with the sucker punch at the end of the first video?
"Your body must be like a stone, your mind... like a meatloaf."

I don't know what surprised me more. That the ref let Pele viciously mollywop tha guy for four straight minutes or that the dude just soaked it up like a bag of tomatoes.
