This past weekend we saw one of the most anticipated grappling matches in years. Current and multiple-time absolute champion Marcus Buchecha versus the legend, Roger Graice, also a multiple-time absolute world champion but from an earlier period in time, before the beginning of Buchecha's career.
The match was held in Rio de Janeiro at the Gracie Pro jiu-jitsu event, organized by Kyra Gracie.
With almost a ten year gap in age between the two grapplers, Buchecha was viewed as the heavy favorite, especially after their previous encounter in Metamoris where Buchecha had dominated most of the match (even though it ended in a draw).
Ultimately, even though the battle was intense between the two giants, Roger was able to definitively take the win with a lapel choke from the back, solidifying him as the greatest jiu-jitsu competitor of all time.
