    I think the Bellator incident was the straw that broke the camels back, and it was broadcast on live TV. I have never met Marcelo, but my friend trains at his school daily, and according to him, Marcelo is not one to over react, it most likely was a series of embarrassing incidents that made him and his school look bad.

    Holy shit you're right. I've never seen him wear a gi that isn't white. And I've never seen him wear a short sleeve rash guard either.

    I've also heard stories that he's very strict in class when it comes to etiquette on specific things like running into other groups of people

    Honestly if a guy would call me out about my social behavior after a cage fight in front of a drunken audience i would flip him the bird too.
    Who cares.

    If it's a sexual harassment matter it's a whole different siutuation.

    The weird thing is, Dillon USED to be all polite, humble, and soft spoken...lol, he even liked one of my Kimura videos and said "good job"....then, whatever the heck happened to him happened.

    This thread leads me to believe that running a BJJ gym may be the single worst job on earth. If a guy like Marcelo has to deal with the drama brought up in this thread....man.

    Although this kind of drama does suck, trust me there are much worse jobs.

    No doubt. Becoming a professional jiujitseiro definitely seems less than the care-free lifestyle that some make it out to be, though.

    True, but not one where you go out of your way to build something for yourself and your community only to raise a baboon in your chicken coop.

    Not really, it just depends on how you handle the public media.

    Personally. If I was in the same situation. I would just boot the students out and no public speech about it.

    No need to explain or talk about it.

    I think it is a cultural thing.

    For example, when my club became independant from our affiliation. We did not feel the need to explain ourselves via public speech or write up on fb or website. To the dismay of our old affiliation that wanted a full a more public breakup.

    My other friend that went also independent later one. He went full public and said things that were true. But no need for public drama IMO.

    It is like the speech that some instructors do when they award a belt. It is a nice touch but I always felt it sounded that there is no need to explain yourself. You are the bb and that is it.

    There would have been a couple of head sized holes in the drywall, maybe one body sized one, and then no more issues after that.

    I don't know man. He kicked out two of his most successful and long time students. Shit needs to be said.

    I understand what you are saying Lechien but there is a big difference between some small academy that's not well known leaving a team and a guy who can be knienknown by one name and may be one of if not the best ever.

    If he kicks them out and they post or someone else posts somewhere in social media those two got suspended the rumors would run wild and message muddy. By releasing the video and statement Marcelo controls the message, clearly comes out looking like hes doing the best thing for the greater good of his students and flat out doesn't have to say anymore. Vs if he didn't people would be asking him in class, behind closed doors, or asking his students until more rumor mill stuff gets started.

    Just my opinion when you are as big of a deal as MG.

    And i remember seeing threads and rumors from a messy breakup all the way to rumors of some sexual or verbal abuse.

    Like I said.

    There is no need to say anything IMO.

    Why the need to explain yourself or attempt the control the public image?

    I just think it is a cultural thing to make everything public etc...
