Legendary Brazilian Jiu-jitsu Champ Royce Gracie Cousin Renzo to Fight Shamrock on Showtime Feb 10

Royce Gracie Organization is excited that cousin Renzo is putting the family art, Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, to the test against opponent Frank Shamrock on the new Showtime venue. Shamrock says, “I will fight every Gracie on the same night.”

West Hartford, CT, February 02, 2007 --(PR.COM)-- Showtime, in an effort to keep up with what is popular, has developed a mixed martial arts showcase of its own, which shows much promise. Renzo Gracie, an amazingly talented fighter, and Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt, is set to take on wrestler Frank Shamrock.

It's not likely that Shamrock will get his wish to fight every Gracie, let alone in one night. There are just too many excellent fighters in the Gracie Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Family. Royce Gracie along with his New England representative Jim Hughes back Renzo with full confidence: “It will really be a superb display of Brazilian Jiu-jitsu's effectiveness,” says Jim Hughes. “Our students are excited, they are coming from all over Connecticut and Massachusetts including our satellite schools of Boston, New Haven, Norwich, Storrs, Southington, Glastonbury, Danbury, and Agawam MA to watch it. Some will travel as much as two hours just to meet up, socialize, and see what Showtime is putting together.”
