“Make a little mistake and you’re done”
There has never been a more anticipated grappling match then the re-match spanning over a decade between Royler Gracie and Eddie Bravo. Eddie was the first Jiu-jitsu practitioner to tap Royler (in his weight class) in a grappling competition at the 2003 ADCC by triangle choke. Now they will face off 10 years later for a final showdown to determine whether Bravo was lucky or if he had Royler’s number all along.
“I’ve wanted a rematch for 10 years,” said Bravo at the Metamoris 2 post-fight press conference at Pauley Pavilion. “I got lucky to go against a legend once. Most people, most lightweights, their dream was to go against Royler. I was lucky enough get pitted up against him. If Buster Douglas got a rematch, that is something I would want to see.”
For his part, Gracie reminded fans that anything can happen in Jiu-jitsu, and that he’s glad to get the opportunity to avenge his most famous loss.
“Make a little mistake and you’re done,” Gracie said. “Just one little mistake. I’ll try to do my best for the next one. Who knows what is going to happen this time, but for sure I’m going to be 100 percent.”
