UFC history The UFC was founded in 1993 by Bob Meyrowitz, Art Davie, and Rorion Gracie after they had watched the Gracie in Action video-series which showed students from Gracie Jiu-Jitsu take on other fighters in other disciplines from Muay Thai to kung fu to boxing and karate and defeat them by using superior grappling to neutralize striking skills. Davie wanted to bring the excitement he had seen in these matches to North American audience by putting them on television. Beginning in 1993 Davie raised funding, formed WOW Promotions and secured a partnership with pay per view producer SEG to produce the very first event, UFC 1, in Denver, Colorado. The inaugural UFC event featured fighters from a variety of disciplines including karate, sumo, boxing, kickboxing, savate, shootfighting, and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. To everyone’s surprise the winner of this elimination format wasn’t the biggest, strongest, or the fastest fighter but turned out to be none other the Jiu-Jitsu practitioner Royce Gracie, who wa ...
Hilarious story at about the 15 minute mark about Rorion Gracie's 1st challenge match in america.
Metamoris II Organizer Ralek Gracie Talks Match Making, Judges, Rule Sets and Rorion's Old Man Jitsu: T.P. Grant talks to Ralek Gracie about Metamoris II, learns about their new judging program and how Rorion Gracie is looking on the mats these days T.P. Grant had a brief talk with Ralek Gracie, organizer of the Meamoris jiu jitsu promotion. A member of the Gracie family and son of UFC founder Rorion Gracie. Ralek competed in MMA from 2007 through 2010 in Japan, retiring with a 3-0 record, his final fight being a win over Kazushi "The Gracie Hunter" Sakuraba. Ralek is now the driving force behind Metamoris, a BJJ promotion that features submission only matches. Their first event was held last fall and they are now set to hold their second event on June 9th, featuring a stacked card. Headlined by a sure to be exciting match between Kron Gracie and MMA submission ace Shinya Aoki, two very aggressive grapplers. Right under them is a match between two of the sport's top stars in Andre Galvao and Rafael Lovato ...
What if Art Davie had never proposed an 8 men tournament to Rorion Gracie and John Milius would MMA be where it is today? RT

Ed O’Neill talks with Adam about Modern Family, working with David Mamet, and a day at the shooting range. Plus, Rorion Gracie drops by to discuss Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and the meteor that crashed into Russia.
Adam Carolla had Ed O'Neill and Rorion Gracie on his latest podcast. I don't know if I can explain how exciting that is to me.
WWE champion CM Punk visited the Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Academy in Torrance, California this week & trained with none other than television legend Ed O'Neill. The 66 year old television star has training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for 22 years & was awarded a black belt by Rorion Gracie back in 2007.
Huh. "Al Bundy" Ed O'Neill is a 22 year veteran of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and has a black belt, awarded by Rorion Gracie. Peg better watch it.
In 1991 I had a great wake-up call: You need to know ground-fighting. I was doing my early work developing the Guardian Arts, and one thing I wanted more of was grappling. That search lead me to a school in Torrance run by Rorion Gracie with an open challenge. We talked for a while, and I agreed to come fight, and win or lose, I'd write an article on the experience with a copy submitted to Rorion before I sent the final draft to Black Belt Magazine. Black Belt ran that article titled "Meet the man who took the Grace Challenge - and lost!" (of course, that could have described EVERYONE who took the Gracie Challenge). At that time, the only known loss Gracie Jiujitsu had was to Kimura himself. It was certainly no surprise that their second loss would not be to me! Later, the UFC would prove the power of what we now call Brazilian Jiujitsu in one-on-one, unarmed fighting against art after art after art. Grapplers dominated until more recent years where more high level MMA victories are now being resolved wi ...
THANK YOU Mitsuyo Maeda and The Gracies with a special shout out to Rorion Gracie for starting the UFC! I believe every mma/bjj school should make it required for their students to know the impact that was made by the Gracies as most people don't really know. The Gracies history and what they have done is nothing short of Amazing. I wish someone would do a true documentary on them and their impact so I could make it required viewing in my school. Maeda was a BEAST! Jiu Jitsu is must more than a martial art. Does anyone else agree with me that the history should be known and respected? or not?

Here's a cinematic gem from 1996, starring master Rorion Gracie and Cynthia Rothrock. Seen it?
Rener Gracie, son of UFC founder Rorion Gracie rolls with a purple belt, with his hands tied, inspired by an open challenge once made in Brazil by his grandfather Helio.
Here is your cool fact of the day. Actor Ed O'Neill aka Al Bundy Oregon recently known Jay Pritchett from modern family received his brazilian jiu-jitsu black from Rorion Gracie in 2007. Very cool one of things I just stumbled across and I think it is great for someone like him to involved in MMA.
