Leading up to his historic duel against Marcus Buchecha at Gracie Pro last month, Roger Gracie went to Gigi Paiva’s Alliance Rio de Janeiro to polish his game.
In the week before the match, Roger had many friends over to help adjust his positions, but one of them was often present. Instructor Zé Beleza made a point of being there for Roger.
A big supporter of Roger since his early career, Zé Beleza had the mission of rolling with the ten-time world champion three days before the fight, and Graciemag was there to record their friendly session. You can check them out switching positions, grips and adjustments in this video.
