Alexandre "Pequeno" Nogueira
By Eduardo Alonso
With his memorable wins in Shooto, Alexandre "Pequeno" Nogueira has become one of the most respected Brazilian fighters in Japan. Recently "Pequeno" joined the Brazilian Top Team, one of the most important NHB teams in Brazil, proving that old rivalries are changing. During the last MECA event in Curitiba, where "Pequeno" brought one of his students to fight, FCF got a chance to talk with the Shooto champion about some of his future projects, his training and more at the recent MECA 5 event…
FCF: MECA has been growing a lot as an event lately, and now we have the presence of a the most important Brazilian NHB teams like Ruas Vale Tudo, Chute Boxe and the Brazilian Top Team. What do you expect from MECA 5?
FCF: We have some Brazilian Top Team members debuting in NHB at this event. What can we expect from them tonight?
FCF: After all the great results you’ve had in Shooto, what is next for you?
FCF: What do you feel that changed in your game since you joined the Brazilian Top Team?
FCF: You brought a student of yours to fight here, but he isn’t a Brazilian Top Team member. How does that work?
FCF: What can we expect from your student, Aba, in this show?
FCF: The best of luck for you in the future Pequeno!

Super Brawl Weigh-In
Goes Back to the Future!
It all began in the winter of 1995 at a run down bar by the airport in Honolulu Hawaii. 8 street fighters stepped in a 16 foot make shift ring at Gussie LaMour’s night club and made history. That is how the now successful and respected (well, somewhat) Super Brawl event got its start.
For all those pining for the good ol’ days, you don’t have to pine any longer. Official weigh-ins and rules briefing will take place at this hallowed ground on Friday night July 20, at 7pm. Come on down and meet the fighters and talk to some who were there when it all began. Trade your fondest memories of the Gussie Dome!…Oh, ya…Entertainment will follow the weigh-ins.
