The Renovacao Fight Team is a Luta Livre based school in Rio De Janeiro that is run by highly acclaimed trainer Marcio “Cromado” Barbosa. Cromado is a former MMA fighter and Shooto veteran who's tangled with legendary names such as Rumina Sato, Dokonjonosuke Mishima, Ryan Bow, and is best known for submitting grappling whiz Caol Uno with a mata leao.
The Renovacao Fight Team (RFT) hosts a stable of aggressive fighters with a dangerous reputation for the ruthlessly aggressive and frenetically paced attack they unleash on their opponents; both standing and on the ground. Prominent RFT fighters include Luciano Azevedo (wins over Jose Aldo, Rodrigo Damm, Din Thomas), 7-1 Shooto Brazil star Carlos “Betao” Alberto, Leonardo “Chocolate” Nascimento (finished former UFC’ers Roan Carneiro and Yuki Sasaki), and Luis “Besouro” Dutra Jr. (two wins over UFC fighter Fabricio Camoes).
As the team continues to grow and excel in MMA competition, they have been treated to a brand new training facility by Master Cromado. The following is an introduction to the team, a series of pictures showing the new gym, a video tour of the training center by Cromado himself, and a list of links pertaining to the Renovacao Fight Team.
