“I wouldn’t normally say anything because usually what happens inside Brazilian Top Team stays inside Brazilian Top Team,” said former coach Bustamante. “But Rousimar has been talking a lot of bulls— about my team so I feel I am free to say what I think as well.”
“In the beginning I thought it was because he was naive or had too much nervous energy during the fights.
“But then he caused a lot of incidents inside my academy during his camps and I changed my mind. I got tired of seeing how he hurts people so often when he is sparring, especially when he has a fight coming up. We used to argue every time it happened, so we argued a lot.
“That was a reason – together with his nonsense excuses every time he lost a fight – that our relationship started to get bitter.
“I actually hired a psychologist to help me with him but, as we have seen, it didn’t work.”
