He got deported for not wearing shoes in the right place

I used to train at his club at FightFirst in Bethnal fairly regularly, he was actually one of the best coaches I have ever had, his BJJ and striking were top notch even if we didn't agree on everything. He also had some really good coaches there and the people that trained very nice guys.
I returned from travelling for a few months and found out he had been deported by reading the story on the forum about it
It was very strange and no-one seemed to no what happened to him until I rang around and found out he really had been deported
Apparently he is planning on coming back to the UK but I think that it will be difficult for him as he seems to have pissed off a lot of people in the UK MMA community and immigration will probably never let him back in.
maybe if he arrives in a nice pair of custom made Lobbs then Uk Immigration may feel that given his footwear selection he deserves another chance?

haha I reckon if he ever does come back that will stay with him forever.
I personally didn't think that was a good idea but I can't see his business practices were good, just that he was one of the only Brazilians I have ever trained with that didn't try and rip me off and he was a good teacher.
