On Saturday, jiu jitsu enthusiasts got to see the rematch more than a decade in the making play out in front of their very eyes when Eddie Bravo and Royler Gracie stepped out onto the mat to settle the score at Metamoris 3.
Back in 2003, Bravo became the first man to submit Gracie by locking in a triangle choke, but many believed it was a fluke.
Saturday night, Bravo proved that his win in 2003 was no fluke by completing some beautiful sweeps and passes, and dominating Gracie on the mat. While the match ended in a draw because there were no judges, social media was buzzing about Gracie’s performance and it was clear that he was the winner in the eyes of many.
A submission win would have been the perfect ending for Bravo, but he still proved his 10th Planet system is something that everyone should look into.
