Violence. Let's face it -- we all enjoy it.

It's why the rap group N.W.A. was a hit with suburban white kids, why films like Scarface, Reservoir Dogs, and Friday the 13th became cult classics, and a big part of why we watch MMA.

Sure, we can calmly and eloquently explain to others how every individual aspect of the sport can be found in the Olympics; except for grappling with strikes, but, "That was called 'Pankration' and can be traced back to the earliest of all sports, even depicted on ancient vases and pottery," you might explain like a wise school teacher.

But we should all be able to admit it's enjoyable to watch Mirko CroCop's highlight reel and watch "the cemetary kick" topple a series of human dominoes, or admire the quick and deadly beauty of punching flurries delivered by Igor Vovchanchyn, Vitor Belfort, or even Phil Baroni while their opponent's head bobbles back and forth like a speed bag.

Wanderlei Silva was asked for his prediction on an upcoming Pride fight, and his answer became legendary:  "I promise violence."  And violence is what he and the Chute Boxe team were known for providing on a regular basis.

During a time when technique, strategy, and the "human chess match" were becoming the blueprint for success in MMA, the Chute Boxe squad's signature style was unleashing a relentlessly barbaric, Thai-based onslaught of raw ferocity that didn't cease until someone was asleep on the canvas.

From the early days of Vale Tudo with icons like Jose "Pele" Landi-Jons, through the glory years of Pride FC with Murilo "Ninja" Rua and Wanderlei "The Axe Murderer" Silva, and all the way to the contemporary era with UFC light-heavyweight champion Mauricio "Shogun" Rua, Strikeforce female champ Cristiane "Cyborg" Santos and top heavyweight Fabricio Werdum, Chute Boxe is an epic fight team that helped shape the sport into what it is today.

Enjoy this video tribute to one of the greatest fight teams in existence:  some labeled "private" with the original members, others featuring guests like Kazushi Sakuraba and Vitor Belfort or just miscellaneous training sessions, followed by the Chute Boxe vs. BTT wars, the epic Pele x Macaco rivalry, Pele x Chuck Liddell at IVC, Pele demonstrating the most effective takedown defense imaginable against Matt Hughes, and a handful of Wanderlei's old Vale Tudo fights.
