Learn about Vale Tudo - Brazilian Martial Arts
Vale Tudo is a Brazilian martial arts system that is similar to mixed martial arts but with even fewer rules (i.e. some fights allow bare fists and headbutts). The limited number of rules can result in more injuries during Vale Tudo contests.
In Portuguese (the language of Brazil), Vale Tudo means "anything goes".
Given the injuries associated with Vale Tudo fights, some Brazilians have been arguing for Vale Tudo to adopt "safer" mixed martial arts rules and regulations.
