Roger Gracie Wins Super Fight Against Marcus Buchecha

Entering the Gracie Pro mat in Rio de Janeiro for a rematch with Marcus “Buchecha” Almeida years after their first clash in Metamoris, Gracie showed why he’s considered the best grappler in jiu-jitsu history.

Gracie and “Buchecha”, the only men who won the IBJJF world championship a record 10 times as black belts, showed a lot of respect early in the match. “Buchecha” went for a pair or takedowns, but Gracie successfully stopped them.

Gracie changed his strategy after both fighters were given penalties, pulling for a half guard and immediately sweeping “Buchecha” and taking his back. The crowd erupted as Gracie went for a lapel choke, forcing his opponent to tap at the 6:52 mark.

Right after the win, Gracie announced his retirement from the sport. He leaves jiu-jitsu without a single submission defeat in his record.

Congratulations Roger and thanks for representing the Gracie Family so well and keep the legacy alive!

Check bellow the best moments of the fight:
