Zé Mario and his long-time student and friend Milton Vieira rolled hard at Rio Fighters HQ in Rio de Janeiro.
"To me it's a pleasure having my master, Zé Mario Sperry, be a part of my journey. He has always supported and complimented me. Rolling with him is an even bigger pleasure, because it's hard for us to get together. It's many trips, many gigs; he's always in the U.S. It's a pleasure having a friend like him; he makes a point of coming and calling me, paying a visit. It's good for my athletes to have an illustrious presence on the mat. This guy here I do love, and I'm not just telling him because we're on camera."
Sperry shot back:
"Thanks a lot, really. It's a privilege to get to see someone we helped and like not only develop as an athlete, but also as a businessman, gym runner, gym owner, event sponsor, involved in the fighting industry. It's very important to me; it's a privilege, an honor in a way, to be able to come here train and be a part of all of this. Thank you, Milton Vieira, for the opportunity. Oss!"
