Rolles Gracie vs. Joey Beltran [SPOILERS]

I don't know if I missed it... but I didn't see a thread on this. What did you think of this fight? Rolles looked pretty sad to me. Just kept going shooting in with lame attempts for take downs. Didn't look like he had anything else.

Definitely didn't bring pride to the Gracie name..

Rolles made Herschel Walker look like Fedor.

It was really bad, especially considering his opponent was the one who took the fight on short notice. He could barely get up off the ground in the second round. I wouldn't be surprised if the UFC cut him after such an embarrassing loss.

I had some hope for him coming into this fight. And well my full analysis of him and his performance tonight is

Aren't the Gracies supposed to be real arrogant pricks? If that's the case, I bet the dude didn't even really train...atleast he didn't train hard for the fight, figuring he'd just walk right through him because..he's a Graaacie.

You're just a cook...

Definitely disappointing performance from Rolls. I'd never seen him but was curious to see what a "modern" Gracie would do. Was it just me or were his takedowns no better, or even worse, than Royce's at UFC 1?! To his credit, Royce, for back in the day, people knew what he wanted to do and he still got fighters to the ground. I'm sort of more interested in what Ryron and some other modern, smaller Gracies could do, but I just don't know now. If I were to take from Rolls performance I'm not that interested. Granted, I think Ryron and others have great ground, but I'd be reserved about saying it is past Damian Maia's, BJ Penn's or Nogueiras (sp?). The mystique has diminished . . ..

OMG this guy is shame to every Gracie out there

I can't believe that Renzo was in his corner. How can you embarrass somebody like Renzo in this way! If I were Renzo I would ban him from the family. This guy should not be allowed to wear a surname called Gracie.

He is such s shame for the whole family!
