That's why Gracie's choke people out and armbar them.....THEY DON'T FUCK WITH GUNS!!!!!
My favorite Gracie is an obvious Rickson. But I think when his son died, he lost his will to fight. He gave interviews saying that he would fight again, but he's been challenged by the likes of Bas and Wandy, and did nothing.
I guess maybe he likes teaching other guys a little more, or maybe he's just plain afraid to be four-hundred-something and one.
My favorite active Gracie's are Ryan and Rodrigo. Ryan definitely gives some much needed spark to the family name and is a maniacal fighter, but I question his discipline and/or dedication. Before he shot himself, he beat up a couple of cops in Brazil, apparently shattering someone's eyesocket.
He's definitely not an ol' skool straight-edge like the rest of the Gracie's.
And, I just like Rodrigo cuz it sounds cool......Hodrigo, Hodrigo.
