    As the news continues to spread regarding BS.net's coverage of the IBJJF scandal, various BJJ and MMA fighters stepped forward to confirm the allegations presented in the BJJEE article titled "IBJJF Under Attack". When asked if the article had any truth to it, Phil Migliarese, fifth degree black belt under Relson Gracie, and co-owner of Balance Academy, responded, "Man, it is all gonna come out soon... I've known about this for years." Vinny Magalhaes, ULTIMATE FIGHTER cast member, UFC fghter and BJJ world champion, also spoke out, stating, "Yes, it's true, I've know about these things since I was a kid, and if anything has changed since, its only for the worse."

    IMO

    This is the best (as in most far reaching) investigation since joining this site five years ago.

    Mad props to you Matt and a wake up call to the bjj community.

    Many people are working on this; I'm just taking point. There is a lot more to come, and, sadly, it's worse.

    It's not a matter of keeping you in suspense; it's more about rolling out information only after it has been fully checked out. If I were to post here that (GB and IBJJF director) Andre Fernandes defrauded the US government by lying on his visa application, I would be remiss in doing so before all the relevant documents had been fully checked out. And so I would never do so.

    Keep an eye on Gracie Barra in the coming months

    Otavio Souza via FB -
    Hi Guys, Last night I just received an email from professor Chris saying that I was fired from Gracie Barra Headquarters, without any warning from before. When I was in Irvine teaching, the responsible guys from GB Headquarters Chris and Derek didn’t say anything that they were planing to do that. No communication at all. I got really shocked when I got to know about that, it wasn’t even from them that I get to know, I was the last to know about it. I was even telling the students here in Costa Rica to Come visit Gracie Barra Irvine in CA to train with, without knowing what was going on. like I always did, representing the Flag and doing the marketing of our academy (GB IRVINE). They are saying that I am never there in Irvine which is not true because I am always traveling to teach seminars and they complaint that my reluctance to adhere to GB curriculum and standards have no choice for them to make that decision. But nobody came to me and said nothing before. I just want to let everyone know because they didn’t even leave me the chance for me to say good buy to you guys. I am sure everyone understands about the times the I have to leave to make seminars, thats my way of making money and be able to live out of my country and make a living of jiu jitsu because what they promises me they never did it, always passing the responsibility to the other one because they never took responsibility with what they promise, or say. I didn’t liked at all they way things happened, this is not a very good atitude. It was going to be more nice if they have come to me, to my face and say: we don’t want you here because of this or that, instead of letting everyone know and let me know while I am traveling and by email.
    But thats fine, everything happens for a reason in life. I will keep fighting and overcome like I am used to do. I just want to say that I love you all (students) and its a chame to leave like that. I will stop by to say hi to you guys when I get back from Costa Rica.
    Regarding the training competition, that we were doing in the mornings, the 9 am class, since I don’t have a place to train anymore and they cancelled those classes that was my only time to prepare my self for tournaments I will talk to you guys when I get there. hope everyone have a great weekend and I will see you all soon. I didn’t want to say all that over the internet but the way I got this news wasn’t good at all. But that’s what my heart is making me do it, even thought I am exposing my self that way but I couldn't even sleep last night. See you all soon.
