There can be no argument about it: Roger Gracie is the greatest jiu jitsu player ever to step on the mat.

Fresh after his career-defining victory over Marcus Almeida, Roger gifted us with an honest and open look into what it’s like being the iconic champion of the Gracie family.

This conversation covered many aspects of his life and jiu jitsu career, including how he developed the physical and mental toughness it took to become a champion.
