Renzo Grace, Brazil's tourism ambassador and a former UFC fighter, has threatened to choke Emmanuel Macron and called his wife Brigitte a 'dragon' during an intense interview that was posted online.

Tension is rising between the governments of Brazil and France following Macron's criticism of Brazil's reaction to the devastating wildfires in the Amazon rainforest.

During the video clip, the 52-year-old Gracie calls Macron a "clown" who is "talking rubbish" and then threatens violence.

"The only fire going on is the fire inside Brazilian hearts and our president's heart, you clown" Gracie says.

Gracie also questioned the manhood of Macron.

"Of course a bunch of people will be surprised, they'll think I called him chicken because I was questioning his manhood, but I've seen plenty of gay men who are more manly than this imbecile."

When the UFC legend was asked about the derogatory comments about Brigitte Macron, he doubled down.

"I'll ask you a question, is his wife beautiful or ugly? Would you take it? If you're going to talk rubbish about our country, you better be ready to listen to some rubbish back, and about your relatives. The fact he sleeps with a dragon doesn't make him a fire expert. She's ugly, brother," Gracie said.
