The Brazilian Beat:
After more than twenty days of wait the Brazilian Beat is finally back at FCF, trying to recap things from where we left. After the so awaited PRIDE Middleweight GP 1st round became history, things are geared towards the next shows in Brazil as plenty of events are about to happened, and times has been changing for our sport in the country. Needless to say Full Contact Fighter is always up to date with all those news in this very country, so after all that wait allow me not to hold you for a long time with this introduction text, and let’s head straight to the news as we send our most sincere congratulations to "The Axe Murderer" Wanderlei Silva for the birth of his son, wishing all the best for the baby as FCF delivers the beat in lullaby style hoping that deadly Silva will keep up the rhythm!
