    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Get it while you can!!! Gomi vs Ralph Gracie

    Yo pple. This is the clip of Gomi's fight against Ralph Gracie... the one where Ralph refused to touch gloves with Gomi, shooted from a mile away and tried to do an Omega (headbutt to knee :tongue3:)

    It's been discussed before, and the clip has come on and off from video.google and youtube. Some of you have seen it, some of you have not, so here it's the link:

    Watch it before the copyright police takes it down (or if a dejected Gracie sends a complaint to the youtube admin Gods :tongue6:)

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    You have sined against the great BJJ, your punishment, 1000 lashes!!!

    Seriously that is a great video. It certainly shows the very real need for any BJJer to get at least descent footwork. I know the focus is the ground etc etc but when they say take it to the ground ASAP I seriously doubt that's what they intend.

    On a side note how much would it suck to pay for that fight and have it over that quickly. Sure it's a great story but what an anti-climactic finish.

    Amen. I dunno, Ralph and Ryan Gracie are just fucking fruitcakes talking big.

    It was until yesterday when I found the clip (once again) that I had a chance to take a good look at it. Jesus Christ, Ralph was doing a WC-antigrapple shoot from a mile away? Overconfidence, I think so. I cannot possibly believe a fighter of his experience would not know better otherwise.

    Prediction: that clip will go away soon. Everytime it comes up in video.google or youtube, eventually it gets taken down because of copyright violations. Of all the UFC, PRIDE and KOTC clips out there, this is the only one that you see that happening... makes you wonder why. :sad3:
