“Number one, let me say that I really don’t know Greg personally, so I don’t want to say anything against his character because I don’t have anything personal against him. But I look at things from the angle of fighting, and the guys I admired coming up were the Chuck Liddells of the world…the champs that fought anybody, and I see the people out of Greg Jackson’s and it’s a different approach. I don’t think that approach is going to capture the imagination and trust of the fans.

When I see people trying to get the decision by dancing around, and I see a lot of that with one particular camp, then yeah, I’m going to criticize it. I think this is another reflection of that. Don’t take this fight, who knows why, because strategically it might not be good for you.”

Famed coach and leader of the 209 crew, Cesar Gracie, recently sat down with Full Contact Fight and discussed his thoughts on Greg Jackson and his approach to Mixed Martial Arts.
