One of the most talented fighters to appear in the late 90’s was Margarida. His real name being Fernando Pontes, he was given this funny nickname that means “Daisy” in english due to coloured braces he had on his teeth when started BJJ. His skills as a fighter made him feared by his opponents for his explosive game, relentless attacks and an appetite for submissions.
The funny nickname stuck but did not prevent him from being one of the best fighters of his generation, winning the most important BJJ tournaments and submitting big names like Fabio Gurgel and Saulo Ribeiro with chokes.
