Many many years ago, the Gracie Challenge saw countless opponents challenge members of the Gracie family in video taped challenges that often saw the famed family take on challengers that were much larger.

Nowadays, the Gracie challenge has become less common, however in the video above you can watch as Rener Gracie challengers a 6’10 270lb 16 year old. After making short work of his opponent, Gracie then taps in UFC fighter Brian Ortega, who stands at just 5’8, to go a round with the much larger kid.

Brian Ortega is of course a 11-0 UFC fighter currently competing in the UFC’s featherweight division, where he holds a 3-0-1 record that most recently saw him KO Clay Guida at UFC 199.
