This weeks match features Mario Sperry vs. Royler Gracie, who meet in a historic BJJ match in late 1998. Sperry is the much bigger fighter in this match, but it is still significant because its the first time in history a Gracie was forced to submit in a match.

Both of the grapplers in this Match of The Week are competing in one of two Masters Super fights recently announced for this year’s ADCC. The matches slated for the event are Eddie Bravo vs. Royler Gracie II and Renzo Gracie vs. Mario Sperry.
