The Olympic arena Carioca 1 hosted the jiu-jitsu spectacular, which featured a 15-minute superfight between the two jiu-jitsu legends. The match would serve to settle the score from their match in 2012, declared a draw under submission-only rules.
Gracie used clever grip fighting to kill Buchecha's takedown attempts, stuffing a number of fast single-leg shots.
