What is a Creonte, you ask? Here's Kid Peligro's definition/description (the best one we could find):
"Creonte" was the name of a character in a popular TV Soap opera in Brazil. The character had many allegiances and changed his mind and his allegiances frequently. The term got adapted to BJJ by Grandmaster Carlson Gracie to describe a "traitor." In Brazil, a student that changes schools to another 'team' is widely ostracized by friends and foes alike and receives the tag of 'creonte' "The late Carlson Gracie labeled Vitor Belfort a creonte back when Vitor left him to train with Brazilian Top Team around 2004. Vitor has since gone on to train with multiple camps under multiple coaches (namely, Chute Boxe, Team Nogueira, Black House, Xtreme Couture and Shawn Tompkins). Yesterday, Fighter's Only revealed news that Belfort has once again left his most recent camp, this time that of coach Tompkins, to return to Xtreme Couture. It's particularly interesting since Belfort is in mid-camp training for his fight versus Anderson Silva only 2 weeks out. Tompkins has responded, as expected, with a good amount of anger and disappointment in Belfort.
Is he a creonte? We can't say because we don't know all the facts. No judgments, just observations. We will say that homie will certainly need his game to be at 100% on point come February 5, 2011. So, Vitor - get busy and keep your jiu jitz sharp!!
As for you, grappler: our advice is to stick with your coach and stay loyal. No one likes a creonte.
