In 2006, we visited the old Nova União Academy, in Flamengo, Rio de Janeiro. There we meet with several fighters and one of them, a cool Peruvian who was affectionately nicknamed by this public at a MMA event in Teresópolis, in Rio de Janeiro, Tony "Mendigo" de Souza. "Mendigo" because he had different stereotype of the fighters, he had big hair and beard and a relaxed way of dressing.
Here he teaches us a position that used a lot in his fights and so was named Peruvian necktie.
