"It was embarrasing. I can tell you he wasn't in that bad of shape. Fact is the nerves drained him of his energy. His stand up and ground work looked bad, nothing at all like he was doing in training leading up to the fight and it was if he couldn't hear what I was telling him. I think the pressure he put on himself overwhelmed him. He'll learn and be back."
Famed Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu coach Renzo Gracie grades the UFC debut of cousin Rolles, who went belly up in his "Relentless" fight on Feb. 6 against late-replacement Joey Beltran. The heavyweight Gracie came into the Octagon on a three fight winning streak, having finished all three of his victims by way of submission. Apparently the "Mexicutioner" wasn't impressed, keeping the pressure on until Gracie emptied his gas tank in the second round and became a sitting duck. With a win, Beltran will more than likely be back -- but what about Gracie?
