NAGA Comments: 

Macaco is a legend. We remember watching videotapes of him years ago, fighting in events that allowed  bare fists with headbutts. He was incredible to watch and fought with the heart of a lion. It has been an honor to have Macaco compete on the NAGA mats. We look forward to seeing Macaco and the rest of Gold Team Fighters USA on the mats for a long time.
