Eddie Bravo vs Royler Gracie the rematch everyone wants to see.
Will it happen or will Royler’s demand for 50 grand kill it?
Eddie is the founder of 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu and Royler is a family member of the traditional Gracie Jiu Jitsu.
The first time Eddie Bravo fought Royler Gracie, was at ADCC 2003.
At that time Eddie was a brown belt and Royler was a black belt.
The fact that Royler was a Gracie black belt didn’t change Eddie’s game.
That day it was 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu going head to head against the legendary Gracie Jiu Jitsu.
10th Planet Jiu Jitsu won, Eddie tapped Royler out with a triangle choke.
Ever since, Royler has been saying Eddie got lucky.
Now Royler has his chance to avenge his loss, but with his outrageous demands the fight might be off.
Eddie Bravo respects the Gracies, why don’t they give him the respect he deserves.
Maybe Royler got caught because he always trains in the Gi.
Obviously training in the Gi didn’t help Roylers No Gi game.

Here is a radio interview with Eddie Bravo on TapOut radio explaining how the possible rematch unfolded.
Eddie Bravo vs Royler Gracie Update
I am sure you already know the Eddie Bravo vs Royler Gracie rematch didn’t take place.
Royler Gracie’s demands were to much for the promoters to accommodate.
Maybe he did that on purpose so the fight wouldn’t take place, because he didn’t want to lose to Eddie Bravo again.
I guess we will never know.
I always thought the Gracies would fight anyone, anytime, anywhere?
I guess that is just a myth.
The Gracies may have started the UFC in America and were all thankful for that.
But, when the competition got tough the Gracies got out.
