    Illegal brazilian Vale Tudo

    So, I saw this on the net today.

    http://g1.globo.com/Noticias/Rio/0,,...7-5606,00.html

    For those of you who don´t speak portuguese: some drug dealers in Rio de Janeiro decided to boost sales by promoting an illegal, irregular, god-knows-what-happens-there vale tudo match. Here are some videos.

    http://video.globo.com/Videos/Player...IDORES,00.html

    Nice, eh. Apparently the fighters got R$ 500 if they lost, R$ 800 if they won (cut the number in half to get the value in dollars, and consider the brazilian minimum wage is around R$ 300 a month).

    But the attendance was good, some 3,000-4,000 people were watching the event. Good marketing scheme eh, I didn´t think fighting sports were THAT popular, even here.

    Sometimes I wonder if everyone is going crazy except me.

    PS: Yeah, I know I haven´t posted in a long while, it´s nice to take some vacations from the forum (plus, I have lots of work at the moment). But I thought you guys might want to see that.

    Hi Phrost, long time no see. As I said, I needed (still do) some vacations from the internet, mostly I´ve posted on brazilian forums (where at least I can meet people close enough to spar with!).

    I´m doing fine, thanks for asking. Been considering stopping Muay Thai for a time (I´ve done it for three years now!... and starting BJJ, as my rusty judo is starting to make me embarassed.

    apparently, i don't meet the system requirements (which probably means they're filtering for brazilian ips).

    1. Como acho a íntegra do meu programa favorito?
    2. Como eu faço para encontrar vídeos do meu interesse?
    3. Como acho os vídeos mais recentes?
    4. Como faço para ver vídeos de Sexy Hot?
    5. Não consigo assistir aos vídeos. O que devo fazer?
    6. O que é o Globovídeos?
    7. Como posso assistir a um vídeo em TAMANHO MAIOR?
    8. Como faço para avaliar um vídeo?
    9. O que são TAGs?
    10. Como faço para enviar um vídeo a um amigo?

    i only pasted that cause of #4.

    First one works. Second is PÁGINA NÃO ENCONTRADA. There are illegal fight networks in most countries, but videos are hard to come by. If anyone has any, now's the time to post links.

    Actually, if you can download the videos either upload them to the gallery, or email them directly to me so we can host them here (so they won't poof on us).
