Yea I remember that.  Sak was fucking with Royce and tapping twice to the guillotine when the rules said 3 times is a tap.  That was still pretty risky on Sak's part unless he told the ref ahead of time he would be doing it.

Salted Karma - YOU idiots could realizer Royce is completely wrong about this acted completely inappropriate without going off on his whole life like it now all the sudden sucks and hes shit and always has been and blah blah blah. Thats worse than what he did.

And of course this is the part where mods claim they dont see any abuse even though an owner posts in the same thread LOL.

I don't think he realizes this is the straw the broke the camel's back for a lot of people. Royce has been one of the harshest Gracies for a while and this is ruining a beautiful showing by Royler and what should be remembered as a great match and a squashing of beef, it's going to be remembered as another lesson in pettiness by Royce. 

 

You'll noticehow many ppl preface what they're saying with a  note on how much he's accomplished and how respectful they are towards his career and legacy -- as Eddie did on the MMAHOUR --, but as a person and role model it's damn hard to keep giving Royce the benefit of the doubt 

 

Eddie handled the whole thing with complete class on Helwani's and kept a good humor about it. Also said the whole thing was taped so that should be sweet to see

I mean so many people refused to even believe this because they wanted to give Royce the benefit of the doubt, probably because of all goodwill the Gracie name has built up. 

 

I remember commenters saying they need a witness because it's so unbelievable and Gracie wouldn't just back down from JJM lol Well Bravo has corroborated it, Royce has corroborated it and pretty soon video evidence will corroborate it. Everyone will forget about this and I'm sure it'll cool over soon, but Royce really made himself look like a Butter Donkey

I just watched the JRE podcast w Bravo. Those two verbally sucked off the entire Gracie family for the first 30 min. Not sure exactly what Royce's issue was but I don't think Eddie wants to have a rivalry like that. Phone Post 3.0

Got this from another thread. Anyone know how to put this up on Twitter or Instagram so Royce sees it?

The Green Arrow - 

Something Eddie Bravo wrote in his book in 2005.  Royce was furious.

"I wanted to talk to him for years, but never had the chance to meet him," Royce Gracie told MMAFighting.com on Monday. "I met him after the fight and he was there, throwing up. Royler dominated him so much, he did so much strength, that he threw up after the fight."

This kind of reminds of that old UFC where Joe Son and Kimo came back to the octagon to celebrate because the guy Kimo just fought couldn't continue on in the tournament after the grueling physical beating he just took (even though Kimo tapped out). Oh.... waitaminute.

I think Rickson held some chokes too long in the early years of Royce training,.

Ramsey - Royler dominated Eddie like Royce dominated Matt Hughes. Phone Post 3.0

That's not a good analogy. Hughes completely destroyed Royce. Bravo did not do anything close to Royler. Bravo spent 20 mins with useless attempts at unorthodox submissions, that never came close to putting Royler in trouble.

While Royler spent 20 mins constantly switching and putting Bravo on his back. I don't know how jiu jitsu matches are scored, but if we are talking points I think Bravo would have won.

Otherwise the match was relatively even and neither guy could seriously put the other guy in trouble.

2 points for a takedown, 2 points for a sweep, 2 points for knee on belly, 3 points for a guard pass, 4 points for a mount, 4 points for the back with hooks.

Sub attempts that need to be defended score an advantage, as does an almost takedown, etc.
