I've seen and heard before several times how Brazilian fighters don't like/respect non-Brazilian fighters, and that sure wasn't the ******* case there, I loved it almost got teary-eyed I won't lie.
Even if that is true I don't see it being applicable for Lyoto. He is of Japanese descent also, and with them being much more hospitable than your average person I'm sure his father taught him well.
