A Lesson in Street MMA: The muay-thai clinch is omnipresent on the streets of Brazil

I’ve been fasting all day because my car is out of gas. It’s not religious, it’s economical. It’s not a good way to end Yom Kippur — a religious holiday that I don’t even celebrate. I’m sure there’s a Brazilian equivalent to this holiday, only there would be much more gratuitous butt showing.

‘Obrigado’ is the extent of my knowledge of the Brazilian culture. Call me ignorant, it’s cool. It’s not like I haven’t heard it before from my father every time I explain to him that MMA is vastly more complicated than boxing. I also know that most Brazilian jiu-jitsu practitioners eat a lot of ‘chicken and steak. Jesus is also located in Brazil. Not sure why all these prisoners claim they found him in jail. Dude’s a giant statue on top of a hill with the wingspan of a prime Manute Bol. Besides being able to see Jesus, Brazilians also have the uncanny ability to pull off the muay-thai clinch in even your most basic street fight. Check out this Lesson in Street MMA and props to dhonathan for the find.
