    Wow...

    What about Ricardinho? Is the VB team split?

    Insane.

    When Comprido and Felipe Costa split off last year I thought this would just be a small thing but now, with Vieira leaving his own team...

    :(

    Mate, the only thing I see in the Fight Zone community says "volta leozinho" - come back leozinho - it is related to begging Leozinho to compete in BJJ again, nothing related with him leaving. I do think Brasa might split soon, but Chicao, and Ricardinho Vieira (as well as Galvao) would leave with him if that happened.

    It might be true after all

    Leozinho Vieira deixa a Brasa :: TATAME ::

    I think more will follow now. The whole point of "fight zone" being created was in case Brasa split. I think it was always on the cards..

    Brasa Team Splits

    It is quite normal part of the progress, a new or old team grows big and eventually personalities and priorities break them apart. it has happened to just about any major team but now is seesms that growing pains are causing turmoil at Brasa Team. Rumblings and rumors of Brasa team's internal strife started circulating a few months ago. Now the rumors appear to be solid with the team perhaps spliting. Brasa has been in a state of flux for some time and after the poor showing at the Worlds the team leaders have been talking and the apparent end result is that there will be a split and re-structuring of the team. Although everyone in the team is still tight lipped about it, we hope that soon we will have statements from various parties about the new direction of the team etc

    The guys are in this cause they love it AND they want to make as much money as possible! If he gets a better offer he'll be changing again ... I understand completely.

    Man, I'm hoping we can get a group here in charlotte that can sweeten the pot enough to propose a Charlotte branch of BTT/Carlson Gracie Team!!!

    It will happen ... eventually.

    From what I understand, my instructor said a lot of the Brasa guys are starting to focus more on mma whereas leo and ricardinho, etc, want to maintain focus on bjj. For this reason they decided to leave.

    I'm sure there are other reasons but this is supposedly a major factor.
