Im a big mma fan, as much of you know. Since Royce Gracie fought at the first UFC until now, Ive been an avid fan. I was so intrigued I even signed up to see what Brazilian JiuJitsu was about. the sport has evolved tremendously. No more will you find the "video game" fights of Karate vs Judo or Tiger Kempo vs StreetFighting! Those were the good old days of styles vs styles. The dominant styles at the time were Gracie Jiujitsu and grappling, these days the modern day fighters are well rounded and are all tremendous athletes. From GSP to Randy Coutre, the modern day gladiators are amzing to watch. Learning from the Gracies has been an awesome experience to how this family changed modern martial arts. Relson Gracie is a master and learnign from him , a life long experience.
The UFC has become a huge brand in mma and its all because of its first rate president, Dana White. The man continues to better the sport and carries it foward as a leader should, growing and expanding it world wide. I respect his innovation and creativity. Surrounding himself with a great team that he has put together and working as a well oiled machine.
I did this speedpainting in about 7 hours, while waiting to hear the results of UFC 102 and while listening to TOY SToRY over and over and over....thanks to my 2 year old. Enjoy and thanks for the UFC Dana, best of luck and much continued success!
