Brazil is the greatest country in the world that’s not the United States of America. There’s a giant Jesus Christ statue in Rio so the country can express their strong obsession with oversized human beings. Truth is, Brazil can’t get over their giant fetish. That’s why guys like Junior dos Santos are treated like demigods whenever they return home. I can’t think of another example in which Brazilians worship giants, so my theory has more holes than EA Sports’ Tiger Woods PGA Tour. There’s a good chance that Brazilians are just obsessed with MMA and rushing into cages after bouts to fully express their gratitude.
Wait, you’re telling me these guys are from Oporto, Portugal and everything I’ve just written in the previous paragraph means nothing? Well, damn. I’ll just keep it up on the rare occasion that this article crosses the quantum barrier to a parallel universe in which this fight actually took place within Brazil. MiddleEasy, the only MMA site that actually cares about theoretical physics.
