Following his exciting rematch with Royler Gracie, Eddie Bravo was confronted by an upset and threatening Royce Gracie. As the story goes, Bravo was throwing up from the adrenaline dump and Gracie approached him and began to berate him.
Bravo believes that Gracie was threatening to beat him up, but Royce clarified his side of the altercation to Submission Radio:
"I did what every man should do when he has an issue with a person, talk face to face. I don't approve what he represents, you see it's nothing to do with the match with Royler, it's nothing to do with what with his jiu jitsu. It's what he endorses, I don't approve it. It's disrespectful toward the art of what my father created. We teach kids, so I don't endorse alcohol and I don't endorse drugs."
"My issue with him is simple. I don't like because he endorses (drugs). It's nothing to do with (which) jiu jitsu he uses, gi (or) no gi, it's because of what he endorses. We teach kids. His message out there is 'it's ok for you to do drugs'."
"I don't care (if) you say it was prescription drugs, well get a pound of pot and walk into a police station. You gonna get arrested."
"Once the guy endorses pot and endorses drinking, to me that's wrong because I have kids too. I don't want my kids involved with pot and I don't want my kids drinking and I did what every man should do if you have a problem, talk face to face with the person. What did he do? (Eddie Bravo) went to the internet saying "Oh my god I saw Royce trying to kick my ass, ohhh he wants to beat me up, poor me'."
