Catching up with Darrel Gholar
By Eduardo Alonso
Darrel Gholar [pictured beating on Johil de Oliveira at IVC 5] has won his share of NHB fights in recent years, one of his accomplishments was winning a WVC eight-man tournament in Brazil, fighting under the traditional NHB rules. In addition to his achievements in the ring, the veteran wrestler has also helped train some of the best fighters in the world — most recently the Brazilian Top Team. The improvement in those fighters’ games has been quite evident, and much of that is due to Gholar’s experience and wrestling skills. FCF had the opportunity to catch up with Darrel Gholar just before the last MECA event in Curitiba, and briefly interviewed him to learn a bit more about his views on the game and his role in the BTT’s success. Gholar also shared his view on the much awaited, and once again postponed, fight between Vitor Belfort and Tito Ortiz, and he was very honest in voicing his opinion. Learn more about the man behind many of the top Brazilian fighters’ recent improvements…
FCF: You fought in and won the WVC 13 tournament in Recife, Brazil. How do you compare WVC and MECA? How do you analyze the differences in the organization of both events?
FCF: So I see that you like beaches [Laughs]…
FCF: Yeah, I meant more on the organization side of it…
FCF: Right now you have been focusing more on training fighters and helping people, teaching them wrestling. Do you ever consider the chance of fighting again in an NHB event?
