Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Matt Horwich is a Scary Dude — And Not in a Good Way

(Video courtesy YouTube/twistereddie)

If you’ve never watched any of the 10th Planet Mastering the System videos, you’re likely not familiar with Renato Laranja, who may or may not be a 27-time BJJ Mundials and capoeira champion and may possibly be made-up character who appears in the series. In a nutshell, Laranja is a BJJ black belt who has a cameo in nearly every episode in which he argues with Eddie Bravo about his no-gi system and seems to scrap with the Bravo faithful including Joe Rogan and Scott Epstein on a somewhat regular basis.

During a recent episode, Laranja "choked out" Bravo in an altercation that happened during one of Eddie’s classes at 10th Planet headquarters in L.A. The "incident" prompted Crispin Glover doppelganger and 10th Planet purple belt Matt Horwich to challenge the Brazilian to a fight in the episode above using way too many homosexual rape references for audience comfort.

As an added bonus, besides weekly marijuana tips courtesy of Bravo, Rogan appears on the show regularly in a Tae Kwon Do Joe segment in which he breaks down kicks used by fighters in recent fights.

Check out the Renato backstory after the jump:

I can't wait to watch this gay fake shit when I get home.

He could have tried to make it slightly more convincing by pretending to be asleep a little longer. I mean do you bounce back that quick after a choke? I've never had a class and I know it's not that simple to return from oxygen deprivation unless your brain is used to low level, oh wait. forgot who I was talking about.

The Laranja shit pretty funny, actually. I was laughing at Laranja trying to say GSot was cheating by using his gi against him.

I wonder who they're trying to make fun of with this Laranja character? Gracie jits instructors?

You guys edited out the part where Renato Laranja says, "This guy right here...he would lick my butthole if I told him," and then Mitrione looks at the camera with his sideways smile and sincerely says, "Yes I would."

It doesn't matter if its fake or not, whats not fake is eddie is a pot smoking fucktard, and I couldn't care less about him or his weird piss drinking buddy Joe Rogaine.

Ok first of all its definitely staged. Second of all they complain that renato jumped on eddie..?? im pretty sure eddie shot in on renato. i know its fake so the argument is irrelevant but still, they could have scripted it better

I got three "until you love me"'s into the first video and had to stop.

I guess smoking that much weed makes you think you can convince people that was real.

A shitload of good information and entertainment on these videos. Especially the med pot delivery. That shit is dope! (no pun intended)

Only watched the one vid of the stoner getting "choked out". Wasn't interested in the rest. But I do believe I just got... yup... I've been trolled. Bravo, bravo. Well played, CP. You win this round. But I'll be back. Believe me you, I'll be back.

"Laranja" is the nickname used in Brazil for someone who is going to be the "dummy", the one that stuff is tested on, tried out on, the one chosen to suffer or be humiliated. For instance, if someone makes up a new caipirinha, and tells you to test it out, then you're the "laranja" for the drink.

Man, Joe throws one kick and is completely out of breath. Conditioning, Joe, conditioning!!!

Looks like Renato can retire now after beating one guy...
