The Brazilian Beat:
It is often said that time flies, and we seem to get this notion in endless ways in our personal lives. One day you’re dreaming of that toy you just have to have, and the next thing you know, you’re buying one for your own kid. However, for one family, time is going as slowly and painfully as possible, as we’re approaching four months without any valid information on Priscila Belfort. It seems like yesterday that Vitor Belfort, Priscila’s brother, fought Randy Couture for the UFC Light Heavyweight title without any information on his sister for around a month, and now we’re already counting 120 days as hopes fade away and the suffering only increases for the family. Some ways of human nature go beyond our understanding, and as it’s inevitable to think of the worst at this point and as nothing will ever justify something like that happening, we still hope for the best. At this very point the best for the family can come in many different ways, but as friends and members of the fighting community we all can only pray for the suffering to end, being it for Priscila or the family as we hope to never have to report this kind of news again and still somewhat dream or hope to report good news about this case.
As time insists on moving on, and keep making us learn to also move on, the sport of MMA continues to bring news here in Brazil and here we are once again to report those! After the first round of the PRIDE Heavyweight Grand Prix, the focus now turns to the next events to take place in the country and the next fights abroad for our main icons of the sport. With Wanderlei Silva defining his recovery strategy, fighters preparing for Korea, Arona set to face Jackson, a Brazilian qualifying to the Olympic Games in Wrestling for the first time in 12 years, MECA and Jungle Fight 2 coming up, there’s plenty of news for you to read! So, enjoy your reading cause times truly fly and life never ceases to surprise us but no matter what FCF keeps the beat going all the way from Brazil!
