    This series 'The Day...' is about 'extraordinary' moments in NHB/Vale Tudo history.

    Today: [Braziian Vale Tudo Scene]

    Note: this thread can be seen as an extension of these ones:


    This can be seen as NHB/Vale Tudo´s modern evolution:

    BJJ vs Karate Challenge [1976] > Hickson vs Rei Zulu x 2 [1980-84] > 1st BJJ vs Luta Livre Challenge [1984] > 2nd BJJ vs Luta Livre Challenge [1991] > UFC 1.

    But it actually began in the 1930s, when Geo Omori, a Japanese immigrant, started to challenge fighters during circus shows, 1st...

    And other Challenges had already occured in the past:
    > BJJ vs Capoeira or Boxe [1930s]
    > GJJ vs Oswaldo Fadda JJ [1954]

    The truth is that, in the 1970s,, the Vale Tudo scene was slowly re-starting...
    After the burst in the 1950s-60s, it suffered a severe crisis in the 1970s (Carlson had his retirement fight in 1970, against Waldemar...and this was Holls´ 1st & unique Vale Tudo fight b4 his accident...)

    That´s when they managed to promote the BJJ vs Karate Challenge, with Holls vs Paulo do Karate [main event... students fightin´1st...]
    Horion & Helio went to promote GJJ on TV, and a challenge was issued a few days later by Paulo & his students.

    Then, the scene grew up till the Rickson vs Rei Zulu fights, and then the BJJ vs Luta Livre Challenge, in the early 1980s.
    But technically, it was still Black Belts vs Black Belts in streetfights, since the events were pretty scarce.

    Other fights were still booked, and the 'Superfight' of the 1970s might have been Rei Zulu vs Euclides Pereira, in 1979...
    But that side of the Vale Tudo scene didnt have the political/business contacts to make the scene translate into somethin´ bigger, realistically...

    Tbh, I really thought that this historical footage was lost...

    BJ no.gif

    They claim he also allowed a Capoeirista to use a knife in the ring....
    But I presume it was rather an ol´school razor (capoeiristas had some street fight techniques involvin´the use of a razor...)
