    Born to Fight: Kyra Gracie discusses her transition to MMA

    Born to Fight: Kyra Gracie discusses her transition to MMA

    As soon as she entered this world, she received a baby gi from her parents, a mat to serve as a playground, and a name that would ultimately pave the way she would live the rest of her life. That is why, 26 years later, Kyra Gracie does not question the reason for being on the edge of going from pure BJJ to MMA.

    As she sits on the mats of Gordo jiu-jitsu, a training facility in Barra da Tijuca (an eastern neighbourhood of Rio de Janeiro), Kyra states "It is a natural path for me. It is something I kept in mind for quite a long time. MMA is getting really big. There are loads of organizations calling me to participate. It has been really tempting." As Kyra kindly and softly speaks her mind, two children run around wearing tiny gis, following the orders of an instructor. This is one of those places where BJJ is born, and keeps reinventing itself as the generations move on.

    This was the same way that Kyra grew up; playing around with her uncles, Rillion and Renzo, and everybody in her family. Kyra’s childhood memories put her in an empty room with an elderly man wearing a red belt staring at her. "He was really stern and serious. I was a small child, quite frightened by his presence", she says of her great grandfather, Carlos Gracie.

    She is cute, in fact she's gorgeous. It's not a bad thing, I don't view her as less of a fighter for being a woman, or being cute. She's an incredible fighter and would absolutely destroy me without breaking a sweat.

    I think it's perfectly fine to comment on, granted had he said "Lolz she's hot! I'd bang her" that's one thing. Commenting that she's cute is another. Hell, I look at most professional fighters male or female and I'm in awe of the physical form. Frankly, as a late-20s tubby desk jockey that's a form I aspire to, and most likely will never achieve.
    I do not aspire to be great, or even good, I hope to suck a little less then last class.

    Yes, she is quite gorgeous. And I totally agree with iganatzami, she'd destroy me in the ring any day.

    She is most likely to do very well in MMA.
