Roger Gracie was born on September 26, 1981. He is the son of Mauricio Gomes ( black belt under BJJ legend Rolls Gracie) & Reila Gracie (daughter of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu founder GM Carlos Gracie) .
Demian Maia is a BJJ World Cup Champion in 2002 & 2003, ADCC Champion in 2007 and two title contender in the UFC’s middleweight division and welterweight divisons.
This clash of the titans happened at the 2002 Brazilian Team Nationals.
