    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.
    I would've liked to at least see Rickson vs Sakuraba and see it right after the dissmantling of Royler. That would've been a great fight. If ot were to happen now, ther would be a lot of people trying to tarnish theri names and they are obviously not the same fighters they once were. Sak has taken an unreal amount of punishment and his age (36 years old) ontop of htat have really changed him as a fighter and I also think that Wandy destroying him the first time did something to Sak mentally.

    Rickson is now 48 years old, probably still in world class shape but certainly his recovery and quckness have to have slowed somewhat.

    If K-1 announced the fight though I would certainly be watching it! But it would not be anywhere near as good as it would've been back when Sak defeated Royler.

    He went to clean it or something and it was loaded and went off.

    I'm guessing it was an accident.

    I can't imagine Ryan was sitting at home thinking, "I wonder how painful this really is?"....Blam!......."Shit, I see the point!"

    Yeah I heard that's why he had to pull out of a PRIDE event one time 'cause he shot himself in the leg back in Brazil....

    God I thought he was just rehabbing....if he is permamently out, then fuck.


    REALLLLY hoping to see him in PRIDE soon...I wish he could've been in the WW grandprix....a match against fellow BJJ ace Paulo Filho would've been entertaining, or any other WW tournament guy for that matter.

    Isn't Ryan on permanant hiatus cos he shot himself in the leg last year?

    I heard that he was 10 minutes from death & that he may never fight again, but I can't find anything of an update.

    hes fought BJ, Saku, Newton, and Hendo. he may have lost, but he's got brass balls for fighting some of the best fighters in the world

    i like Ryan too, because of his willingness to stand and bang with anyone. i see him as the future of the Gracie name in MMA, kids that can roll with the best, but have the willingness to stand and trade

    renzo's cool... and yeah i see ryan as the future of the gracie name..
