I foresee a challenge match coming on. Rogerio "TATU" Taborda versus Robson "Power Jiu Jitsu" Pereira. 1st match No-Gi at Pereira's UGC challenge on October 14th. The 2nd match at PABJJ Gi championships (TATU's event) the following weekend October 20th. Think alot of people would pay the spectator fee and come to see this matchup?
Come on guys I know you both know whats posted on this site. Lets see it. I know that TATU is rolls with anyone regardless of size and weight differential. Robson?
Yes, PRESIDENT of the PA State BJJ Federation, which part of that didn't you understand? Who gives a **** if he is affiliated with the IBJJF? I'm not affiliated with them either. There are many LEGIT black belts that aren't affiliated with IBJJF. The IBJJF is just Carlinhos organization anyway and doesn't mean ****. Robson proved that by buying his diploma.

You don't need to contact anybody if you want to start your own State BJJ Federation to make it legit. You only need be legit yourself and the other legit schools who join it make it legit. Take the time to contact Carlinhos and ask him what year Robson won the Brazilian Nationals.
While you're at it, take the time to contact Robson and ask him if he wants to roll with Tatu and let the spectators judge who is legit and who isn't.
Thanks Data. This is what I meant.

So here's the recap from the beginning (for those of you who tuned in late):
-2 1/2 years ago Robson shows up at Rat Pack (then a brand new school in PA) and presents himself as a Rickson BB who is rusty due to an injury and looking to get back in the game
-Rat Pack is owned by BBinFu who buys the story and puts Robson on staff.
-Almost immediately, Irishtemper, who traiined w. BBinFu at Hatfield, starts **** on the internet about robson and his credential.
-BBinfu goes to Robson who now says he'sactually under Sakata and Sakata was under Rickson
-Robson taps to whitebelt during dojo storming
-BBinfu sends Robson to Hatfield for "remidail training" under Latta who says Robson sucks
-BBinfu demands more proof and Robson comes back with Marcos/Rigan who say they know Sakata and sign letters to that effect
-Marcos and Rigan promote Robson to 2nd degree
-Marcos then tells Dod he doesn't know sakata but Monsur does
-Robson then gets letter from mansor that says he knows sakata and that he is a Carlson BB
-RP talks to Carlson who says he knows no Sakata
-Dod Contacts Mansor and catches him off guard and he says he knows no Sakata
-BBinFu, after taking all of Robson's **** for 2 years dumps him, Marcos, Rigan and affiliates with Simrell
-Simrell dumps Rigan and Marcos due to the Robson contraversy
-Robson opens own shcool/ claims now to be a Brazilian National Champ and Sao Paulo State Champ and starts promoting tournmanets with Tatu
-Tatu then dumps Robson and says he's full of **** and bought his belt
-Tatu's Federation is removed from Robson's web site
-BBinfu discloses that Robson provided no proof of sakata or any lineage other than Marcos and Rigan and Mansur who he had never met before this all started
-Mansur gives Robson 3rd degree w/in same year as he received 2nd degree from Marcos and gets him a diploma from the federation
-Robson competes in Judo tournament (claiming a brown belt in judo) and gets schooled by green belt
-Marcos is then removed from Robson's web site
-Rigan creates new website and excludes Robson
-Moon contacts Rigan and learns that he too has dumped Robson
-Robson opens second school and creates video espousing his new "Power JJ" method claiming his guys are cleaning up at the UGC (his tournament) with this method
-9/07 Saddly guys continue to train wit this guy and to come on to forums like this and defend him despite this sordid history
Did I miss anything gentlemen?????

I've been keeping my eye on this for a little bit now and I did not know about the "choking people to death in Brazil" thing, duckII!
I thought MMAfan said something about that on this page, will go back and check as I don't want to be inaccurate.
Or perhaps that came from my conversations with BBinFu
I will remove it until I confirm.
Robson removed any mention of 'Sakata' from his website and now refuses to even utter the name. His last claim as to who his original instructor is was a vague reference to someone nicknamed 'Paulista'.
Robson claimed 'Paulista' was a Carlson blackbelt but a comprehensive list of all Carlson black belts provided by his widow and students makes no mention of a 'Paulista'.
Well I dont think I mentioned it on this website...so it must have come from BBINFU...who heard it from me. Robson also claimed to have beaten the **** out of three guys at the Swiftwater Inn in stroudsburg(or maybe the town is swiftwater...near stroudsburg) and says he has a criminal record because of the incident. Not that those stories are particularly relevent to this investigation.
True, and my apologies for the slight thread derailment. I was just taken aback by another claim. It's like the boy who cried wolf. It's hard to sift through what is reality from partial reality; fantasy from complete and utter BS.

Other than that, I think my recap is 100% accurate. Add to it that "itishtemper" was on mma.tv today saying he was there when Robson rolled at Hatfield and that, in a word, he was "awful".
