Royce Gracie Hall of Fame

Inducted into HOF(Pioneer Wing): November 21, 2003 

Royce Gracie is a Brazilian semi-retired fighter competing for Bellator . A member of the famed Gracie family, he is considered to be one of the most influential figures in the history of MMA.

Gracie gained fame for his success in the Ultimate Fighting Championship. He was the tournament winner of UFC 1, UFC 2, UFC 4, and fought to a draw with Ken Shamrock in the championship match in the Superfight at UFC 5. 

In a career that spans over 25 years, Gracie has had some the most memorable  bouts in MMA, which includes  wins against  fellow UFC  hall of famers Ken Shamrock, Dan Severn and Kazushi Sakuraba. 

Out of 20 MMA fights, Gracie has lost to only two opponents. His first loss was against Kazushi Sakuraba in 2000 at the opening round of the Pride Grand Prix in a historical bout that lasted 90 minutes and went six rounds , finally ending when Gracie’s corner threw in the towel. His only other loss was handed to him by former UFC welterweight champion Matt Hughes at UFC 60  when the fight was stopped late in the first round due to punches.

Gracie popularized  Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and revolutionized mixed martial arts with his results, contributing to the movement towards grappling and ground fighting in the sport.
