    This is the first I heard of him returning back to a major competition. The last thing I heard of doing was traveling and doing seminars.

    He relapsed and was out of competition because of drug problems again. Imo he is one of the greats. One of the few guys in marcelo's weight class who have beaten him. The guys known for beating marcelo: drysdale, jacare, popovitch & others are all weightclasses above him

    According to BJJ Heroes, Estima is a 191lber, making him a Meio Pesado.

    Still impressive that he beat Marcelo in that impressive run at ADCC in 09

    To be fair Marcelo has beaten both Drysdale and Popovitch numerous times and have only lost to each of them once.

    That's what I was getting at. Granted, the Euros are a bigger tournament than that, but it's technically not his return.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, and I don't really know what I'm talking about but...

    I believe Terere's chances for a relapse are less now, because from what I understand, his core problem was not properly understood.

    A lot of his drug problems were rooted in or exacerbated by schizophrenia. With the right treatment of the core problem, managing his addiction should hopefully be more successful.

    Wait, did I miss something? Is he not allowed in the U.S. or something?
