Of course Boba Fett would clean up in K-1

Challenge him to spar.
What I've seen agrees with you. They either lose or BJJ/Wrestling combo to avoid takedowns/deal with ground.
I'd also look for clips of Jean 'White Bear' Silva who uses BJJ and capo to fight. Great fun.

Tell your friend that capoeira is not a fight but an african social event connecting the participants with the ancestors. He should read TJ Desch-Obi's research. Never meant to be a form of self defense. The original meanings were lost to or never translated for alot of people taking it up in the 19th and 20th century and so you have all these people learning it and mistaking it for self defense, breakdancing, etc...

I was reading about that Riot. Sam Sheridan referenced it in Fighter's Heart. He said Renzo was stabbed during the riot. I think that is what fight finder is referencing

I was watching Pride reruns (Pride 10 I think) on FSNY the other day and saw the first round and a half of Kazushi Sakuraba v. Renzo Gracie. Gracie was on his back, Sakuraba was standing up, and, out of nowhere Sakuraba throws... A CARTWHEEL! Yes, a cartwheel, and an utterly ineffective one at that. Basically nothing happened as a result.

I heard him coaching one of his IFL fighters to repeatedly headbutt the solar plexus from guard.

That was an attempted guard pass.

I figured, but it was the most random thing ever.

Thanks for the vids, too bad he didn't do enough capo to convince my friends in capoeira club. Ah well, I'm sure there's some psycho Mestre out there who knows just enough to keep from being DEMOLISHED long enough to convince them (then again, at this point I doubt anything will... stubborn bastards...)

Found some info on this. Info below is highly embellished, but amusing.
MAIN EVENT - Renzo Gracie (GJJ) v Eugenio Tadeau (Luta Livre)
Tadeau grabs a sloppy double-leg and literally rips Gracie's legs from under him and dumps him on the mat. Now people are coming from everywhere to hang on the ring apron; one loses his balance and falls into the teeming mass of rabid fans which crowd-surfs him briefly before presumably stomping his face in. The referee steps between Tadeau and Gracie in an attempt to restore order. And then? Well, then all hell breaks lose. The camera pulls back for a wide shot from. the ring and you can clearly see a man standing on the ring apron being pulled down into the crowd by his shirt with punches flying before he even touched the ground. A chair flies from off screen and bounces off the head of a poor spectator who probably just wanted to drink beer, oggle the foxy Brazilian ring girls, and cheer drunkenly.
Instead, fans grab all available chairs and just start wackin'. You've seen the ECW footage of the chair barrage in the ring? Well, throw in 5000 drunken Brazilians howling in anger over being denied a decisive finish to their main event, and you've got the very definition of a NHB clusterfuck. One poor slob takes a brutal, Foley-esque chairshot to the back of his head as he cranes his neck in vain to see the ring, and with adrenelin running high, the crowd starts to riot, Brazilian-style! A small man drags his 300+lb neighbor to the ground and locks in a triangle choke from his guard! A bald man looks furiously for an exit, only to be blindsided with a rear-naked choke from a wide-eyed teenager in a Gracie t-shirt! A frightened photographer taps out to an elderly lady in a floral print gi! Even the referee goes down at the hands of an angry fan, who shoots in for a double leg and immediately sinks in a kneebar! He's pulling his leg! And pulling his leg! And pulling his leg! Just like I'm pulling YOUR leg!
Chairshots and wild punching is the order of the day, disappointingly. The video cuts off here, and when it resumes, the house lights are on and all of the ringside seats are in chaotic heaps around the ring, with the fighters nowhere to be seen. There ain't a winner, and the eventual outcome of this match is filed away in the "What if?" cabinet with the winner of the 1994 World Series (which would have been the Yankees, BTW). Would Tadeau have continued his late dominance and been the first man to crush the Gracie NHB legend with the entire NHB world watching? Could Renzo have managed a miracle comeback predicated on Eugenio's sloppy groundfighting and pulled the rabbit from the trap, as in Gracie v Severn at UFC4? Alas, we will never know. No rematch was signed.
