THE RETURN OF DANIEL GRACIE. has put together a nice little interview with Daniel Gracie who will be making his return to the cage/ring/pit on November 9th in Tel Aviv, Israel of all places.

A few thoughts:

  • This guy was an 8 time city champion of Rio De Janeiro! We long for the day that jiu jitsu is so popular in America we can have real city championships. "Los Angeles City Champion" has a nice ring to it.
  • His claim that there is no in-fighting between the Gracie family is pretty dubious.
  • 38 seems a little old to be getting back into the MMA game seriously, but hopefully he's been following the Gracie Diet religiously.

  1. I was wondering what happened to him: he looked great in Renzo's Legacy documentary, at least physically: more than most of the Gracies, he looked the part of an MMA fighter. Though having said that, a huge part of Royce's original appeal was exactly because he didn't look like a fighter.
