    I know he got kicked out of a few teams, but the guy has to be actively training with real fighters. Anyone know where he is at?

    Probably in some sewer, grappling mutated alligators. It explains everything.

    I've seen Minotauro's Team Nogueira logo on some of his fight shorts.

    I'm pretty sure he went to Team Nog in Rio after he left BTT.

    I believe he is now training out of Sing Sing in NY State. The warden has him tap out convicts who get on his bad side. He doesn't release the hold until at least 3 guards are there to pull him off.

    as far as I know he trained BJJ in his home town, went to BTT and was there for years and then switched to Team Nog in Rio.

    If by haters you mean 'people who value respecting the tap' and by hate you mean 'don't respect people who injure all their opponents', then...yes.

    I am curious as to where he trains as well. I know he started at BTT, and was awarded his blackbelt by Murilo.

    I thought the Lombard fight was at welterweight but I could be wrong.

    Hector lost to Boetsch and Okami at MW, then cut to ww around same time Palhares made the switch.

    Not sure of kicked out exactly, but there's an interview with Murilo that's easy to find where he says that BTT was glad to be rid of him

    Nope, Palhares x Lombard was actually before Okami/Lombard and was at MW. It was Palhares' last fight before dropping to WW to fight Mike Pierce.

    I can only remember one guy who actually got injured by Toquinho and it was that polish dude Dwrval. The rest just got their souls crushed and tried to diminish him. Avellan, Shields, Pierce... who else?

    Wow had no idea about that Bustamante interview. I can't see any team being willing to take him in if that's how he treats training partners.
