Whenever Carlson Gracie arrives in Brazil he brings some 'bombs' to the MMA world. This time the bomb weights 132 pounds, was born in Mexico 23 years ago and is called Miguel Angelo Torres. Caming to Brazil to solve Visa problems and check the training of his students in Rio, Gracie brought his new pupil and launched a challenge: 'I don´t believe there is a fighter in Brasil that can beat him. He already fought 34 Vale-Tudo fights and just lost one by points against a much heavyer oponent. This guy is a complete fighter: Very good in Boxing, Muay Thai and Jiu-Jitsu. I challenge any fighter in Brasil in under 60kg category to try to beat him', guaranteed the Gracie.
After lunch with Miguel in a barbeque place in Copacabana, last thursday, master Gracie went to Passando a Guarda, the most famous TV fighting program of Brazil and repeated this challenge in a interview to the renowed reporter Jorge 'Joinha' Guimarães.
