Rener Gracie Tells Brian Ortega: I Won’t Let You Die In A Cage

Rener Gracie has been at the crux of media attention for years. The Gracie Academy patriarch has been the one to support many UFC fighters – notably Ronda Rousey and Brian Ortega.

Just yesterday we reported on how the Gracie family coaching prodigy has been along side Ortega and how touched he was ith Ortega apologizing for loss.

Doctor stopped it and I agree. Broken nose and a broken thumb I was willing to die in there. Last night was Max’s night. I’ll be back. Thank you to everyone who’s always believed in me and supported me.

A post shared by Brian Ortega (@briantcity) on

“When we arrived at the hospital, the first thing you said was I’m sorry. My brother, you have nothing to be sorry about. You came from nothing and you competed on the highest level against one of the best p4p fighter’s in the world. For four rounds, you took his best shots, but you never went down and you never stopped firing back. The heart you displayed last night could never be taught, and I’ve never been so proud to be your coach, your friend and your fan. You didn’t fail, Max prevailed. And if it was ever possible to win in defeat, you did it last night. I love you bro.”


Now a video has come where a visibly upset Rener tells Ortega he won’t let him die in a cage:

To Ortega’s credit he did not question the stoppage subsequently and at this point he’s probably looking at a 6 month medical suspension.
