Flo, the UFC dumped him quite some time ago. He has been fighting in smaller organizations. I know he is a Brazilian but I don't know if he is a naturalized U.S. citizen or here on a work visa. If he is not a citizen, he needs to be deported (after he serves his time, if convicted).

In The US do you presume guilt or innocence BEFORE a trial

In England, one is presumed innocent until guilt can be prooven. Shall we wait for the trial...or do you all wanna hang him now
Great point, Tyburn. I'm sure you won't mind that I signed your sisters up for one of his BJJ classes.

He owns a gym in Portland, and has been in the states for over a decade.
I assume he is either a legal resident, or a US citizen.
(I was born here, no clue how these things work)

If you ask me, showing up willing, especially when he could have easily saved his money and stayed in Brazil; it shows strong character that he believes he can prove his innocence.

Innocent until PROVEN guilty!

I agree he could have easily stayed in Brazil, but I hope he gets a fair trial and these charges are not true.
