    im not really a fan of the gracies. they are solid jiu jitsu masters but they arent fighters. only reason royce found sucess in his career is because he fought people who didnt have ground game. then he ran into sakuraba. then he was like shit. wrestling.

    wallid is a beast, getting choked out/beat by him doesn't mean you're a scrub.

    I wasn't implying he was, just some good old fashioned Carlson Gracie and friends rivalry :)

    So everyone else who fought in the UFC at that time wasn't a fighter?
    Just because what was considered top of the game back then wouldn't cut it now doesn't mean he wasn't a fighter.

    That's like saying, just because the Bugatti Veyron can outrun the McLaren F1, the F1 isn't or wasn't a fast car.

    GTFO

    Anyone who has something called a challenge match to prove their art is a Goddamn fighter. Anyone who is willing to go bare knuckles anytime of the day is a Goddamn fighter.

    How do you call Royce not a fighter? All the Gracie's were straight scrappers, with jiu jitsu black belts.

    I have reason to believe this man is trolling. The sheer stupidity present in his post suggests either total retardation or troll, and seeing how he managed to type that stuff out I would go with the latter.

    whether you want to admit it or not the gracies not just royce changed the fight scene forever. let's not forget about PRIDE too.

    granted they don't win like the once did but you seeing these guys lose to people that are at the absolute top of the MMA game. i would like to see anyone of you stand in the ring with matt hughes and let alone do as well as renzo and royce did.
