He's a good self brander though, which I think is a common trait of the Gracies.
Yep, I was impressed by how the biggest picture in his dojo was him getting his arm broken by Sakuraba. He always talks very highly of him, he must be the only Gracie who does... (Ralek was respectful though)

The match with his commentary is a perfect example of what casual fans miss out in during MMA fights, specifically when it comes to the grappling. There is just so much going on and unless you've been there and experienced it, you may not know exactly what's happening. The booing immediately when a fight hits the ground...this is probably part of the reason why.

We need trained guys to offer live chats during events.

I watched the podcast Yesterday, great break down.

Royler had no clue what Eddie was doing.

This is just proof that BJJ has evolved past GJJ. Clinging to their old school approach is allowing others to innovate and move further and further past them. Watching the two Bravo/Royler fights clearly demonstrates this.

If Eddie wouldn't be as douchey as he can be at times and not given his techniques such dumb names, people would take him and his (clearly effective) style much more seriously.

If nothing else, learning Bravo's half guard game is a must for anyone that rolls. It was certainly an eye opener for me the first time I experienced it on the mat.

The douchy names are really cringeworthy aint they. Is he like in fuckin highschool or something?
but yeah, he's a Machado BB. Obviously knows his shit.

but in the first fight Royler dominated Bravo up until the flash sub. If the rematch was 10 years ago you'd be stupid for not betting the farm on Royler.

Disagree, Eddie looked bigger and stronger.
