    Good move for him think he stuck at ATT for too long think at Blackzilians he can take it to the next level !

  2. DAMN! says:

    Not surprising if Hector Lombard abandons ship as well

  3. R4j4 says:

    good move for thiago, he’l have alot better sparring partners and trainers at Blackzilians so should help improve his game alot more.. ATT ain’t got a single decent fighter besides thiago alves

  4. Ignorant Fan says:

    I figured this would happen eventually. ATT is falling apart fast

  5. tkr says:

    ATT is getting some karma for breaking up the original Brazilian top team
