Ancient BJJ Artifact | Royler Gracie vs Leo Dalla: Copa Pele 1997

 

Back in the day, Royler Gracie was one of the Gracie family’s most fierce competitors. Unafraid to test himself against all challenges, Royler would often fight in the open class to evaluate his jiu-jitsu against others. Normally competing at 154 lbs in this main event super fight of the Copa Pele event, Royler squares off against the very tough and much heavier opponent, Leo Dalla. Royler completely dominated Dalla, who normally competed in the super pesado division, demonstrating to the world how potent the Gracie Family’s style of jiu-jitsu was in sport jiu-jitsu.
