Gregor Gracie Biography

Gregor Gracie was born on December 26th 1985, he is the son of Ângela (widow of Rolls Gracie) and brother to Igor and Rolles Gracie (both sons of Rolls). Gregor grew up very much in contact with the Gracie family and soon began his training which he took mainly with Rilion and Carlos Gracie Junior.

Even though Gregor was naturally talented, he did not take BJJ too seriously when growing up, it was only as he reached his purple belt that he decided to follow the career of his older brothers and live off Jiu Jitsu. He devided most of his time between Rio de Janeiro (where his mother lives) and New York where his brothers established themselves, training at Gracie Barra in Rio while when in the Big Apple he would stay at Renzo Gracie Academy.

Already a very successful grappler, Gregor spent some time helping Renzo Gracie’s IFL team in preparation for their MMA tournament. After feeling how he paired up against some of the MMA’s best in everyday training, Gregor decided to take his chance in MMA. His premiere happened in 2007 with a submission victory over Josh Lydell, a career he progressed with all  victories by submission by mid 2011 (time when this article was written) and a record of 5-1-0. This adopted Gracie has also successfully entered the world of fashion, having modelled for high profile campaigns such as the Marc Jacobs swimwear advert. His love life has also made the tabloids of some of Brazil’s most notorious gossip magazines after Gregor’s involvement with stunning Brazilian model Fernanda Paes Leme.
