Every Wednesday, Administrative Editor Jordan Breen welcomes a member of the mixed martial arts media into “Press Row” on the blog. This week, Breen welcomes Portal do Vale Tudo and's Marcelo Alonso to “Press Row.”

Breen and Alonso, a pioneer in Brazilian MMA journalism, discuss UFC 134 in Rio de Janeiro, and what the event means to the Brazilian MMA industry. The pair discuss the emergence of Anderson Silva as a star, the potential retirement of Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, and what little-known Brazilians might make big impacts in Rio.

Breen and Alonso also break down the impact the card could have for Brazilian MMA on the whole, the changing perception of the sport in the Brazilian media, and potential destinations for UFC events in Brazil.
