MMAjunkie Radio recently interviewed MMA legend and UFC Hall of Famer Royce Garcie on Combate Americas, a new Latin American-themed MMA reality show. The show is set to premiere on Sunday, February 23 on mun2. Gracie will be among the guests on the show. Below are some highlights from the interview.
Gracie on what Combate Americas is about: "Those guys have been training for a long time, and they just never had the opportunity. There's so much talent now in South America, and they've been doing martial arts for years. But they're never going to have the chance to be discovered because they're in a small town in South America. They're not in the big cities. This will give them a chance. Brazil has so much talent. In the north of Brazil in the small towns, there is so much.
Gracie on Campbell McLaren, co-founder of the UFC and producer of Combate Americas: "Campbell is my brother. He knows what he's talking about. He knows what he's doing. He's been around a long time, and now he's coming back around and recreating – starting all over again."
