VIDEO | 10 Never Before Seen Gracie Challenge Fights That Pre-Date The UFC

February 10, 2014 5:45 pm by BJPENN.COM News

At the birth place of the UFC, the Torrance California Gracie Academy played host to Mixed Bouts we now call, ‘Gracie Challenges’.

In an attempt to prove that Brazilian Jiu Jitsu was the best martial art, they would open up their doors in Torrance and take on all-comers.

Recently the new generation of Gracies have released these tapes for the first time and we have them for your viewing pleasure.

Take a seat, watch some fights and brush up on your MMA history.
