I read a long time ago that Vitor Belfort was originally supposed to fight as Vitor Gracie. How might this have changed the Gracie reputation and lineage?
In his first fight I beleive he did fight as vitor gracie.
He would be undefeated for over 50 years.
I think Untappable hit it right on the nose
He would have taken a lot more shit when he scumbagged
Carlson for $$$.
Back at UFC 12 I think he was Vitor Gracie-Belfort.
I do not believe he will ever get the approval to use the Gracie name. He and the rest of them screwed Carlson. Carlson is one the greatest fighters of all time, not to mention a great, honest, and loyal man.
Yea, the scandal with Carlson totally shot him away from the Gracies.
the gracies would have good striking and wrestling
"he'd change his name to ritor "
- ha ha.
Carlson trained some of the best fighters today. Imagine if they would have stayed together.
"I do not believe he will ever get the approval to use the Gracie name."
You don't need anyone's approval to use a name.
Belfort ran out of gas against Sak. He had him at one point.
just be another gracie saku f-ed up.
