Gracie Appreciation Thread

Recommended Posts

Back when I was heavily involved in mixed martial arts I was invited to attend a Gracie training camp.

In my eyes the Gracie's opened an entire new way of fighting.

 

Much kudos.

 

I'd like to see some of the Gracie's come back to the UFC.

Nick Diaz trains under a Gracie... Rickson, I think. If you follow that link to the Gracie family page, it will take you to a few of Helio's grandsons who are apparently just coming onto the NHB scene... one of them submitted Joe Stevenson (Ultimate Fighter welterweight winner). They are coming back around it seems.

I know there's a lot of new people coming out of the Gracie camp but every once and a while it would be nice to see the veterans come out and play.

Shamrock is a joke these days. They just bring his punching bag ass out of a closet to get beat on so some younger fighter can look cool.

They'd get smashed.

I was disappointed to hear that Karo Parisyan won't be fighting this weekend.

Hughes vs. Riggs?

I've gotta say Hughes based the shitty green tattoo on Riggs' arm. I agree though, I wanted to see Parisyan fight.... his judo is crisp as hell and just fun to watch when he starts tossing people around.

 

Don't Riggs and Hughes pretty much fight out of the same camp?

^mutual friend/training partner.

i'm going with hughes too. i would have liked to have seen him go up against

somebody other than riggs though..i too wanted to see karo fight, but the rest

of the lineup makes up for it.
