Profile of Helio Gracie's 1st Fights in the 1930's

There have been a few threads which brought up Helio Gracie and his fighting history here in the last few weeks, so I asked if there would be interest in a thread which compared all available accounts of his matches.

People seemed excited, so I started it up.

Today I came up with an article to profile Helio's first matches in the 1930's.

The First Ultimate Fighter: Helio Gracie's Fighting Career (Part One)

Included: accounts of Helio's debut against a man frequently described as Brazil's lightweight boxing champion, as well as another bout sometimes called "the first professional vale tudo in history."

Please give it a look and let me know what you think. I'll have another installment up Monday.
