The Facts: Royler Gracie vs. Eddie Bravo

Posted: February 25, 2014 in BJJ News

Rolyer vs Eddie

As many of you know there will soon be a rematch between Eddie Bravo and Royler Gracie at Metamoris 3 on March 29, 2014. There is a ton of controversy that surrounds their first fight (watch it here) because Bravo wasn’t very well known and Gracie is of course from the famous family who originally founded Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Also, that fight is what propelled Bravo’s popularity and his BJJ association 10th Planet. There are a lot of assumptions about who will win the fight, however, there are also a lot of facts about the two fighters you may or may not know. I wanted to give visibility to each fighter with as many transparent facts as possible so you can decide for yourself who could win this match!

Looking at the facts shows why it was such a huge upset when Bravo tapped Gracie out. We can’t ignore Bravo due to his previous win, but when looking at the facts, he is definitely the under dog. Gracie has quite the track record and statistically has the highest probability of winning, however, there is always a chance of an outlier – wow that got nerdy quick. All in all, I think it will be a great fight and I think big events like this are great for the economy of the BJJ community. Personally, I want to go with Royler, but I think there is always a possibility of the underdog winning!

What is your prediction?
