Why Doesn't Royler Gracie Get Any Props?

He was about 150 pounds soaking wet, yet he was the first Gracie to show balls and fight Sakuraba. While Rickson ran from Saku, Royler was all "Yeah, I'll fight this bigger dude." Sure, he lost, but damn, dude should get props.

Also, he faced studs like Sudo and Kid later in his career. He got demolished, horribly, but at least he stepped up and faced these guys late in his career. Plus, we got that awesome visual of Genki bowing to the corpse of Royler.

So yeah, Royler's a manly man, and deserves more respect. He is the anti-Rickson Gracie.

Discuss.
