Marty interviews the one and only Royce Gracie. Royce Gracie is a true martial arts legend. Because of his victories in the early UFCs, he started a martial arts revolution and open millions of people’s eyes to the power of Jiu Jitsu. He has inspired countless people (including myself) to study Jiu Jitsu and continues to spread the word around the world and in 2003 became the first fighter inducted into the UFC hall of fame. In this interview Royce talks about the early UFc days, the influence of his father, growing up with his brothers and cousins, his mother, what inspires him, working with Bellator, traveling and teaching Jiu Jitsu, time off the mat, and more.
