Eddie started training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in May 1994 under a legendary fighter & master Jean Jacques Machado who he credits for improving his technique and introducing him to his spiritual side. He won the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Abu Dhabi North American Trials lightweight division on October 5, 2002, in San Diego, California — where he beat an opponent whom we’ll call “A”. He beat “A” again at the US Grappling Championships in December 2002, this time by points.
Eddie Bravo may be the only man in history to have successfully defeated Royler Gracie, otherwise considered by some to be the greatest Jiu-Jitsu fighter of all time. Heading into the fight both men were undefeated (Royler with a record of 29 – 0 and Eddie with a record of 3 – 0) and the fight was billed as “the battle for the best Jiu-Jitsu fighter in the world.” Eddie’s victory over Royler ensured him of his position as one of the preeminent Jiu-Jitsu fighters in America today.
