The official video – Robson Moura had a huge guy walk into his school and challenge anyone there to fight for $20. Robson said he would fight him, and beat him in 5 minutes – and then the guy would have to sign up as a new student! Always classy, always humble – Robson schools the guy without hurting him. Remember walks around 170lbs!
