“We want to create a new paradigm and recover values from the fight that were lost over time. Today, MMA fighting means blood and money. We will honour the warrior spirit and the fighting art.”

Rickson Gracie is taking an adapted version of Mixed Martial Arts to Brazil on the 22nd of this month.

Called “Mestre do Combate, the most significant changes to the rules of traditional Mixed Martial Arts will be same day weigh-ins and no ref stoppages.
