Vale tudo video
Info about "Vale tudo video"
Vale tudo (meaning “anything goes” or “No rules”) are full-contact unarmed combat events, with a limited number of rules, that became popular in Brazil during the 20th century. This form of wrestling has been considered a combat sport by some observers.
Vale tudo has been made famous by fighters such as Marco Ruas and it takes the most effective combat techniques from styles such as Freestyle Wrestling, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Judo, Sambo, Muay Thai, and Western Boxing.
Critics argue that vale tudo shows should all adopt the much safer mixed martial arts rules that have developed and gained athletic sanctioning in the United States. Supporters of vale tudo counter that the sanctioned mixed martial arts style that developed in the United States is now so vastly different from true vale tudo, that it should be treated as an entirely different sport, just as kickboxing, sanctioned in United States due to its safer rules is considered different from Muay Thai, for example.
