    Hey, guys.
    I've heard that Jorge "Macaco" Patino may be making a return to the UFC in the near future.
    The dude has FINALLY made the decision to move down to lightweight and I think he may be able to make some waves in the division. He's old, but he's not washed up. I've trained at his gym in the past. He's a really cool guy to talk to. He's told me a lot of stories about the Vale Tudo scene in Brazil.
    I'm wondering who his first matchup will be. Do you guys think it will be a complete can or because of his age/experience, a difficult opponent?

    Jacare's not a lightweight though.

    No thanks!
    There are tons of young Brazilian fighters UFC should sign instead.

    The guy must be about 100. Might as well bring in Pele while you're at it.

    I have trained with Macaco Gold Team and am excited to see him come back. He hasn't looked bad recently

    I've trained at Gold Team in Houston as well and Macaco hits like a train and has a few good years left in him!! I can't wait to see him in the UFC! I got pumped up when I saw him in Charles Oliveira's corner of a fight

    Macaco just got 40 this year.

    He should fight Matt Hughes or BJ Penn.

    Bocek would beat Patino. Would be a decent first fight though!
