Eddie Bravo’s on again, off again attempts at a jiu jitsu rematch with Royler Gracie may be on again. A deal between the two reportedly fell through last year and Royler’s revenge on the first American to submit a Gracie would have to wait.
In a 2011 interview with TATAME, Eddie Bravo commented on why last year’s super match didn’t happen.
“Well, I don’t know exactly what he’s thinking but he accepted the match and did an interview with GracieMag and TATAME saying all sorts of confident things but then 5 days later he asked ADCC for 50k show money on top of the 25k prize money, so I’m not sure if he thinks that my style is too risky for him or if it’s just a ploy to try and throw my training off or something. I never discussed money with Sheik Tahnoon, I just accepted the match”.
In this video for MMA Inside the Cage, Gracie talks about a rematch with Bravo, his father Helio, controversial fighter Chael Sonnen, and more.
