Last night at Metamoris 3, Eddie Bravo and Royler Gracie put on a riveting 20-minute sport jiu-jitsu match that was a rematch of their famous 2003 match at ADCC.

Although the fight ended in a draw, as neither fighter submitted the other in the time-limit, Bravo controlled more of the match with his sweeps and submission attempts.

The fight took place with a live audience and was captured on video and live streamed on the internet, but what took place after the match was something unanticipated.

The Underground spoke to a person who wished to remain anonymous, but was back stage at the event. After exhausting himself for the 20-minute match, Bravo left the stage and proceeded to throw up as his adrenaline dumped. It was then that UFC Hall of Famer Royce Gracie approached Bravo and began to berate him.

Allegedly, Gracie threatened to kick Bravo's ass because he believed that Bravo disrespected his brother Royler, his family, and his father Helio. Bravo was apparently caught off guard by the attack, and friend and trainer Jean Jacques Machado intervened to keep the situation from escalating.

Bravo later relayed this story to a group of people back stage after the event.

It is good that the Gracies stick together but that type of shit makes them look petty usually. I wonder what slight was actually made.

Really sad to hear this,there's no honor in the way Royler argued the restart after it was clear what position they were in previously.Then back stage threatening after Eddie honored all of the Gracie family with his post match comments.

Gracies always worried about others trying to tarnish the Gracie name, when with their lack of respect for their competitors and displays of poor sportsmanship they tarnish it all on their own.

Weird because Eddie was nothing but humble saying that he got lucky the first time and talked about how a draw was a victory in itself.
As for the Gracie comment, they have a saying that the legit BJJ blackbelts are all Gracie family, either by sweat or by blood. So it was nothing but a respectful comment. Phone Post 3.0
