Royce Gracie threatened Eddie Bravo after Metamoris 3
I would have posted this in the Metamoris thread but its been closed.
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.

Well, who knows, but if it is ever corroborated to the point of he/she said I'd believe it in a heart beat. Certain Gracie's are well known for taking undue credit and finding things dishonorable.

No RNC or loss of bowel control?
I don't believe gossip until someone has shat themselves.

It was a draw. They where both fairly equally matched.
Under a rule set with points Eddie would have won the match as it unfolded.
That being said, that doesn't mean much because who knows how Roylers game would have changed if he was considering points.
Still though I would say Eddie looked better in that fight to me.

I believe Eddie Bravo disrespected my family by thinking that jumping half guard like a dog humping my leg is a valid martial arts technique.

Royce is just jealous of Eddie's bitchin' goatee.

Eddie looked pretty awesome in that match, the sweeps were slick, and his sub attempts were good. Was a bit sad to not see something more come out of Royler.Daniel: I don't know if I know enough karate.
Miyagi: Feeling correct.
Daniel: You sure know how to make a guy feel confident.
Miyagi: You trust the quality of what you know, not quantity.
