“Fina Estampa,” the next prime time soap opera on Brazil’s most popular television network, TV Globo, will feature a UFC fighter as a character. The news was released by author Aguinaldo Silva in Joaquim Ferreira dos Santos’s “Gente Boa” column in the Saturday edition of O Globo newspaper.

“I’ve been watching the UFC ever since the Gracie’s were unbeatable,” said Aguinaldo, showing he knows his stuff. “I was going to put a soccer player in there, but who could stand that? I picked up on the male audience’s obsession with fighting. I did some research and then changed the whole story around.”

Little did Aguinaldo know that Rio de Janeiro’s female community gets together to watch the UFC and knows more than most fanboys. . .

Asked in the column about who will play the fighter, the screenwriter said: “Wolf Maia (director) suggested Rodrigo Santoro. If his commitments abroad don’t get in the way. . .”

If they get in the way, then Cauã Reymond, a Jiu-Jitsu brown belt, enters the fray, along with some other big names in the Brazilian media.

“Fina estampa”, próxima novela das 20h (ou das 21h?) da Rede Globo, terá um personagem lutador do UFC. Foi o que adiantou o autor Aguinaldo Silva, na coluna “Gente Boa” de Joaquim Ferreira dos Santos, no jornal “O Globo” deste sábado.

“Acompanho o UFC desde os tempos em que os Gracie eram imbatíveis”, disse Aguinaldo, mostrando que entende do riscado. “Eu ia colocar um jogador de futebol, mas quem ainda aguenta? Me liguei na crescente mania, por enquanto do público masculino, em relação às lutas. Pesquisei e mudei a história toda”.

Ih Aguinaldo, mal sabe você que a mulherada carioca já se reúne para assistir ao UFC, e entende mais que muito marmanjo…

Perguntado pela coluna sobre quem será o lutador, o dramaturgo disse: “O Wolf Maia (diretor) sugeriu o Rodrigo Santoro. Se os compromissos dele lá fora não o impedirem…”

Se impedirem, ainda tem o Cauã Reymond, faixa-preta de Jiu-Jitsu, entre outros bons nomes.
