Metamoris 3 takes place on Saturday, March 29, and features a rematch of a colossal upset as Eddie Bravo will take on Royler Gracie. Their first match was in 2003 at the ADCC Submission Wreslting championships. Bravo used wrist control on a planted left hand of Gracie to secure a triangle choke and win the match. Bravo was a heavy underdog against Gracie.
“I’ve wanted a rematch for 10 years,” Bravo stated at the Metamoris 2 post-fight press conference. “I got lucky to go against a legend once. Most people, most lightweights, their dream was to go against Royler. I was lucky enough get pitted up against him. If Buster Douglas got a rematch, that is something I would want to see.”
Now they will rematch at the Peterson Automotive Museum in Los Angeles, California. The 700 ‘glorious’ seats in the arena are sold out but you can still purchase access to the live stream for $20.00 right here.
For grappling fans the card is one that can be dubbed stacked, especially with the main event harboring both a bit of revenge and large amounts of mutual respect between two of the best jiu-jitsu practitioners on Earth.
