Gregor Gracie Biography
Gregor Gracie was born on December 26th 1985. Gregor is the son of Angela Gracie (widow of Rolls Gracie). He is a half brother to both sons of Rolls Gracie, Igor and Rolles Gracie. Gregor was always in contact with the Gracie family while growing up and he soon began training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu with Rillion and Carlos Gracie Jr. Though Gregor was naturally talented at Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, he did not take it very serious while growing up. It was only when he reached purple belt level did he decide to follow in his old brother’s footsteps and try to make a living off of jiu jitsu. Gracie split most of his time between his mother’s house in Rio de Janeiro and New York, where his brothers established their training camp. While in Rio de Janeiro, Gregor Gracie would spend his time training at the Gracie Barra Academy. When he was in New York he would train out of the Renzo Gracie Academy.
As Gregor was already a very well established grappler, he spent time helping Renzo Gracie’s IFL team prepare for their MMA tournament. It was here that Gregor would take up his interest in Mixed Martial Arts, having sized himself up against some of MMA’s best competitors. Gregor’s mixed martial arts debut took place in 2007 with a submission victory over Josh Lydell. Gregor would continue his career with all victories by submission in his record until mid 2011 with a record of 5 – 1 – 0. Since then, Gracie has also successfully entered the world of fashion. He has modeled for high profile advertising campaigns such as the Marc Jacobs swim wear. 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.
