I can't believe that.

Thats fucking horrible. His legacy will now be tarnished for ever. This just throws dirt on the Gracie Name. Rickson must have thrown up when he heard this. I was there live and was REALLY wondering why Royce looked so big.

I couldnt believe it. He will not be seen as the pioneer he was.. But, as the juicer who lost like the rest of them. I lost a ton of respect for him. Hell, Ken Shamrock is starting to look like less of a dick.

Actually, he didn't change MMA. His family and him might have introduced an event where different martial arts background fight each other. It's more of a Boxer vs Wrestler, or JJ vs Karate, etc. By no means Gracie and most of his relatives never really evolved after that.

Shamrock (yes of all people) on the other hand might have changed MMA. He combined standup, grappling, and submission which is the true definition of Mix Martial Arts.

no I don't agree with you and wait! who beat Shamrock? hahaha
and the Shamrock improved his ground game was bc of Royce Gracie
and yes him and his family changed MMA
actually MMA Started because of them.
They created VALETUDO in brazil so people could challenge them and then I think Rorion Gracie created UFC to show the world what Gracie Jiu Jitsu was/is all about.

When Vale Tudo first introduced it was "Style vs Style" not hybrid fighting or as we like to call MMA.

you are right because the goal of the gracie family was to show people that their style was the best and I really think BJJ is the best style of figthing
