One of the greatest stars in the sport’s history, he was champion of four different MMA organizations: Rings, WEF, Pride and the UFC.
He was also the protagonist of some of the most thrilling matches of all times.
Like this one here against Mark Coleman, at Pride 16, on September 2001.
The armbar from the triangle set-up was one of the finest examples of how Minotauro used his Jiu-Jitsu to win his MMA matches.
Minotauro also announced that he’s going to be an ambassador to UFC fighters in Brazil.
We say thanks to Minotauro for the thrills he offered us in 16 years as a professional with 34 wins and 10 defeats.
