I later called him and we talked a bit ~ Rafael Mendes


He got in touch with me. I don’t know him personally very well but he seems to be an upright kid besides being obviously a very ggod athlete and competitor. If he complies with the rules of our team like everybody else, he will be very welcome to train with us. ~ Andre Galvao

    I would like to see him go to Checkmat or Marcelo’s

    • I haven’t heard Checkmat suggested. Thanks for the post, BJ!

    Why wouldnt he go to cobrinha or mendez bro if miyao are still there?

    • miyao are rivals and cobrinha likely wouldn’t take him if Jordon Shultz went with him (which is a possibility)

  • Anthony

    Atos got him for sure

  • Josh

    Or Cyborgs.

    inside word is Atos SD. Couldn’t say for sure, but pretty good sources…

    He should go to the Mendes Bros, I believe they would compliment his game and they are very family orientated which would be a good transition coming from TLI
