Fernando Terere

Anyone know what happened to this guy? I know he went to jail for some crap that went down on an American Airlines flight but has he done anything since?

My friend was telling me about him and I finally watch some videos of him and he beat Marcello Garcia twice. Been trying to find his record but no luck.

Well yeah he was like accused of harassing a stewardess or something but it was just a language barrier thing. I read an article a while ago that he had come back I will try to find it for you

Well that article was from 2004, I think he competed in the 2006. After that I haven't seen where he has been in action.

Well found another update on him and it isn't good:
Quote:

One of the biggest names in Jiu-Jitsu of all time, Fernando “Tererê” seems to back away from the competitions. Since he was arrested in the United States in 2004, when it was held for two months due to a disagreement with the crew of the flight back to Brazil, Tererê alternated good and bad moments in life. Despite the return to the matts with victory in June 2008, Ricardinho Vieira, one of his greatest friends in the Jiu-Jitsu, doesn’t believe in the recovery of the two times World Champion.



"I feel sad talk about this, is really a shame... Today I don’t see more conditions of Tererê competing again, because he couldn’t stay away from drugs and negative things... I gave him all the support and is very sad, but honestly, I think it’s very difficult, I don’t see more conditions", says Ricardinho, who used to go to Cantagalo slums, in Rio de Janeiro, everyday to pick his friend up and train in his academy.

Sucks because this guy was truly one of the best.
