Nova Uniao head coach urges his fighters to move out of Brazil

Quote:
As he helps Jose Aldo to prepare for yet another title defense, Nova Uniao head coach shared with AG Fight his opinions on being an MMA fighter in Brazil. In Pederneiras' eyes, it's just too difficult to make a good living out of being a fighter in Brazil, due to a lack of support and structure.

"Brazil is going through some tough times. If I could, I would send them all abroad. I said it before, they can leave today. I see a lot more advantages outside than staying in the conditions Brazil offers today. I train them so they can change their lives. If I can't do that here, then I really want them to move away. No matter what team they join."

"If it were up to me, I'd send them all away today. But it's up to them. Jose Aldo is just too attached to his roots. He won't leave his neighborhood. If I tell him to move to another one, he gets upset. Aldo has financial stability, though. If I could give a piece of advice to other fighters, not only from my team, it would be to migrate to the USA, or one of those countries with better conditions than Brazil. It's too hard to be an athlete in Brazil today, training and growing financially."

To drive his point home, Pederneiras compared the situation in Brazil to other countries.

"If you take USA's history in the Olympics and other world championships, you'll see the investiment is absurd. We never had that in Brazil. You can't describe the kind of athlete we have over here. We go there and we win titles even with the structures we have. We still build good athletes, with no support. We don't do 50% of what we could be doing."

Jose Aldo is scheduled to unite the UFC featherweight title against interim champion, Max Holloway, on June 3, at UFC 212, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

People don't realize how fortunate we are to live in the Westernized world. I know quite a few Brazillians. They're all looking to move out and one even said he'd never go back home; Curitiba. That's how dire the financial situation is over there sadly. There is one thing going for them though. I believe champions are built from the ground up. Coming from a humble beginnings gives ya the hunger that others' may not possess. One of my favorite quotes is from Fedor.

"Years ago we hardly had anything to eat. Now I earn more money and I see every opponent as a man that tries to put me back to that poorer period. That man has to be eliminated." - Fedor Emelianenko

A brazilian told me their government is fkd up with communists or socialists trying to take over everything.

I remember thinking it sounded similar to the united states with Hillary and banker cronies trying to take over everything, except brazil is much worse.

Makes sense, as soon as he started to get rich... he got fat and one dimensional.

A Brazilian told me I hate Brazilians and am the most offensive person he'd ever spoken too.

Where is old Sporty Spice anyways?

But yeah as far as training goes, you've have more options, facilities and just overall comfort and safety in America than Brazil for sure. Honestly if you want to be the best fighter ever, as in complete in every area of the game, you want to be in America training. I find irony in saying this because of how many legends, almost a majority, didn't do that in America...but in most instances you look through their gym and they were the only standout.

But just on @No_Mercy 's point, I'm not sure that it's specifically a case of fighters being tougher or harder if they grew up in rough conditions, I think it's more of a case of people needing something to validate their toughness. If you watch TUF, EVERYONE has a sob story. EVERYONE had the "hardest upbringing ever". In actuality, it's probably been pretty easy for them. But they need validation of their ability to overcome and succeed, so they zone in on that. Like that Fedor quote, when they are tired, in the cage or the gym, they need to feel something to push them through and for a lot, that's the idea that "it's taken me so much to get here, I've overcame so much".

For some people, they've been able to build that mentality alone. They don't need the sob story and poor me background, they just have it in them to overcome. They use the fear of losing as their motivation and their desire to win. They don't need to convince themselves they are "doing it for their family" because no fighter in history was doing that.

A communist/socialist is someone who denies God granting people rights and freedom.

Communists/socialists hate the idea of people having democracy, rights, freedom, capitalism. They believe people having too much freedom and rights is extremely bad & the answer to fixing society is to give the state/government more power and enslave humanity under more rules, regulations & more severe punishments for the smallest of things.

Communism/socialism is defined as being typically atheist, with the state having most or all of the power & normal people having little power or influence. This is because atheists deny the idea of God granting people having rights/freedom & choose to put their faith in the government/state which they often worship like ancient Rome worshipped their state/emperor and atheists in north korea worshipping Kim Jong as a deity figure.

Democracy/republics are defined as typically being religious, with power being distributed between the people and the state in a more decentralized format. This is due to religious factions believing God grants people rights and freedoms which the state cannot & should not deny.

Hillary publicly admits one of her mentors is a man named Saul Alinsky who was a closet communist that spread socialist/communist propaganda in a passive aggressive way. Another of Hillary's mentors was Robert Byrd who was literally a KKK, ku klux klan, leader. If journalists did their jobs, more people would be aware of this type of basic info.

Well, i can say by your claims, you have absolutely no idea what communism/ socialism is.
You should read a book or two, before putting all that white trash/ red neck out in the open.
I'm not dumber right now for reading all that hill billy propaganda and i pity those who believe your words.

P.S. God has nothing to do with politics.
