A declared MMA fan, actor Vin Diesel went out of his way to be sure his friend Rodrigo Minotauro would be at the world premier of “Fast and Furious 5,” on Friday night in Rio de Janeiro. The meeting was marked by remembrance of old times.
“I met Vin Diesel in Tokyo in 2001, when I was still fighting in Pride. He’s a big UFC fan and always watches us fight,” says Minotauro.
The black belt also reveals how the American actor knows a thing or two about the gentle art.
“I’ve trained with him a few times. He’s got skills, he’s about blue belt level,” he says in conclusion.
