Anyone know that they fought?
Swimming Trunks, and a wifebeater.
that was a quick tap
if Hugo didnt go for that armbar on Tank he may have won and finished Tank from the back
I still have not seen anything from Duarte to suggest he was any good.
I feel sorry for Duarte in a way. It was easy to be a name in those days, all it took was some reputation and he had the Rickson fights and so on. He fought Tank Abbott who probably was in the shape of his life at that time and a handful for anybody at the level of competition at that time (at least you couldn't afford to mess up) and was soundly beaten, could have gone either way. And then there was the Kerr fight, who could touch Kerr in 1998?
After those losses he was not interesting at all. I remember reading an interview with him in a swedish magazine shortly afterwards where his manager said Tank got lucky and Kerr cheated, why those two were in Sweden to begin with is beyond me.
Anyway, from what I have seen of him he seems not to have had spectacular skills, just a Vale Tudo fighter who could go some way at the time, plus he lacked a fighter's heart. I suppose he has a regular job now and dwells on the missed opportunity.
Everything happens for a reason, per. Maybe it was God's way of saving him from something far more horrific in his life than merely working a 'regular' job.
Hugo was a beast back then.
No surprise there, it's been common knowledge for a while that Rickson counted every single roll he ever had as part of that record... I still think that's better than guys like Gokor and Vale trying to pass works as real, or some guy named Bill as Akira Maeda...
The guy on the coffee can that beat the guy that beat Royce!
DiscoNfrno - Swimming Trunks, and a wifebeater.
How come you have a ´00 join date when all the others get the 010101 one?
Immaculata - Hugo was a beast back then.
I still don't see it. Other than punking out clueless guys like Gerald Harris and double H, what did he do to impress you? Every time he ran into someone with anything to offer he got thrashed.
Even his wins are unimpressive to me.
Duarte had a reputation as a killer before he hit the Ufc..how did he get that rep, by beating Howard??by losing to Rickson on the beach??
i remember being hyped to see Duarte in the Ufc and then he gets destroyed..
the Kerr/Duarte fight was boring as hell..
An AK pattern rifle is a great rifle to own. There are many reasons to own one which have already been stated in this thread.
Find a way to make an AK reliably accurate and you have a rifle that is better than an AR in my opinion. Don't get me wrong, ARs are decent and 5.56 grows on trees.
But 7.62 packs more punch and ammo is cheap if you know where to look.
Mine hits 300 yards on a torso sized target with ease. What more do you need from a 30 cal semi auto rifle...?
^^Duarte and Tadeu came over as a pair i remember..with Tadeu i can understand his rep as be went to war with ismail and imo was beating renzo gracie at pentagon combat..but Duarte, not much there..
Well he did edge out Juan Valdez for the spot on the coffee can.
Bry Bry - ^^Duarte and Tadeu came over as a pair i remember..with Tadeu i can understand his rep as be went to war with ismail and imo was beating renzo gracie at pentagon combat..but Duarte, not much there..
Eugenio was in some wars but watch the Renzo fight again he was getting owned IMO.Duarte looked good to me in a few of his wins But the times passed him bye
Surprising to see the Canadian Jiu JItsu champion outclassed like that on the ground!
Hugo "The Killer's" opponents prior to Tank fight. The Killer tore through this list of elite competition. He WAS a beast!!!
