Daniel Cross tracked Desmond Miles to a mixed martial arts event in São Paulo, Brazil. Desmond was searching for a mysterious First Civilization object. Daniel got there first and shot the object's owners in a private room on the upper floors of the stadium. When Desmond arrived, Daniel fled with the artifact, but Desmond cornered him in a courtyard close to the exit.
After a vicious brawl, Desmond knocked Daniel unconscious, allowing Desmond to retrieve the object and escape through the city's subway.
