Bellator hosts Royce Gracie jiu-jitsu seminar at 6 p.m. ET
MMA pioneer Royce Gracie, a UFC Hall of Famer who these days works with Bellator, will host an online jiu-jitsu seminar Wednesday at 6 p.m. ET (3 p.m. PT). Gracie is considered one of the best jiu-jitsu practitioners in MMA history.
The seminar will stream live on Bellator’s Facebook, Instagram and Twitter social media outlets.
The 53-year-old Brazilian won three of the first four UFC tournaments, regularly beating men much larger and stronger than him thanks to the famed Gracie family jiu-jitsu. His first 11 MMA wins all came by submission.
After a retirement of nearly nine years, Gracie returned in February 2016 and stopped Ken Shamrock with a first-round TKO at Bellator 149 in Houston in a trilogy fight. He’s been inactive since then.
