“Jiu-Jitsu, don’t leave home without it…”

Renzo Gracie, while commentating a would-be mugging on the streets of New York real time via Twitter

 

“I only reacted after one of the guys grabbed my arm and tried sticking a hand in the pocket where I keep my wallet. When I saw that they wanted to rob me barehanded, that’s when I knew I was going to fight. If they had knives or weapons in that situation, I’d have handed them my wallet and cell phone.”

“Maybe that was the right decision for Jon Jones’ career. Would I have done the same? No.”

Tito Ortiz, a former fighter turned manager, on the light heavyweight champion’s choice that spelt the end of UFC 151

 

“Vitor has trained a bit of everything here at Blackzilians, and he’s got his striking, ground and pound, and Jiu-Jitsu flowing. Predicting the outcome of a fight is always difficult. I feel the first one to slip up will pay dearly.”

Bráulio Estima, on Jon Jones vs. Vitor Belfort at UFC 152 on the coming 22nd 

 

“Bochecha’s a young black belt with a good game. He’s a heavy guy who moves like a lightweight. I certainly will not underestimate him.”

Roger Gracie, on the 20-minute match with no points or advantages at Metamoris Pro
