Eddie Bravo vs Royler Gracie 2 – The Rematch (Stuart Cooper Hype Video)



Stuart Cooper, who makes some of the best BJJ documentaries made a great hype video for the upcoming Metamoris super fight rematch between Royler Gracie and Eddie Bravo.

From Stuart Cooper:

I have been waiting for this for a long time as i am a huge fan of the sort so hopefully i will be there filming myself with my own camera :). Eddie Bravo is a Mexican-American practitioner of Brazilian JiuJitsu who holds a third degree black belt under Jean-Jacques Machado. He is most famous for his win against Royler Gracie by triangle choke in the 2003 Abu Dhabi Submission Wrestling championships while still only a brown belt. His particular style of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, called 10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu, has had some degree of success at different levels of competition, including Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu tournaments, submission grappling tournaments, and mixed martial arts events such as the UFC. However, Bravo’s style is considered controversial largely because it consists solely of no-gi jiu-jitsu. Bravo has repeatedly questioned the validity of the traditional approach to teaching jiu-jitsu with the gi for people who are primarily interested in mixed martial arts since it is illegal to wear a gi in most MMA organizations. Some critics condemn the unusual names that Bravo gives moves: The Zombie (a technique for trapping an opponent’s hand on the mat), Crackhead Control (a technique for preventing opponents from standing up to escape rubber guard), and The Electric Chair (a submission from Lockdown, a modified half guard that Bravo favors, that stretches the opponent’s groin muscles).
