Mixed Martial Arts legend Royce Gracie recently stated that he feels the Diaz brothers fights represent what the sport of MMA should be. Check it out:

“I like their attitude,” said Gracie, who was at Bellator’s recent media day event promoting Bellator 131 on Nov. 15 at San Diego’s Valley View Casino Center. “Their attitude. Their style. If they stand you up, they can exchange fists with you. If you go to the ground they are super dangerous. They respect jiu-jitsu. They know how to fight from the bottom. They know how to fight from the top. They are finishers. They go for the finish, they don’t go to score points. Their fights are what this sport should be.”

I personally couldn’t agree more with the statements made by the UFC Hall of Famer Royce Gracie. What about you? Sound off Penn Nation!
