    I wonder how he is going to do in MMA... He's extremely good from the top and bottom and has a whole series of submissions alot of grapplers tend not to use as often eg Brabos, drop guillotines, body lock.. I'm hoping he makes some waves!!! :D

    Anyone notice his accent is essentially gone?:D

    Makes me wonder which one is real, the brazilian or the american one.

    Yeah it is totally gone, it wasn't overly thick in his instructional, but it was there.

    I can attest that living in a new place for any period longer than 6 months can affect your accent, I lived in Canada for a year and a half, and I totally started to sound Canuck with the Eh and all that...

    Also I lived in Taiwan for a year and my accent changed there too.
