While Gracie Jiu-Jitsu has been practiced for decades in Brazil, it was relatively unknown in the United States, up until the early beginnings of the Universal Fighting Championships or more popularly known as the UFC. There, we all witnessed how a 185-pound man competed and dominated against much larger opponents who were trained in various other forms of Martial Arts like karate, Kickboxing, Boxing, Greco-Roman Wrestling, and others. The seeming invincibility of UFC Champion Royce Gracie against bigger, heavier opponents paved the way for Gracie Jiu-Jitsu to reach mainstream recognition and interest. To date, all mixed martial arts fighters now incorporate Jiu-Jitsu in their training.
