Pedro Rizzo (Ruas Vale-Tudo), Vitor Belfort (BTT), Vitor 'Shaolin' (Nova União), Nino Schiembri (Chute Boxe) and Antoine Jaoude (Ruas Vale-Tudo). This is the MMA Dream Team contracted by 'NO GI', the new brazilian fightwear that is rocking the brazilian MMA scene.
Launched in December by businessmen Walmir Barroso and Ricardo Mayer, starting in one shopping center in Rio de Janeiro (Barrashopping), the new fightwear is already a big sucess. 'The quality is not the only big diference between 'NO GI' and other fightwear. We have a business plan that includes social engagement, so that 5% of all our sales will be given every month to sport projects in the favellas. Doing ethat we are sure that we will bring many children to the sport', states Walmir Barroso as he departed for Los Angeles, where he is traveling to see Vitor Belfort´s fight against Tito Ortiz. 'Besides supporting Vitor, I'm also interested in spreading 'NO GI' to the USA, and then later to Japan. This is going to be our first step', assured the businessman.
