Quotes

#Quote
1I said 'You cheated.' He gave me a look like "So what?" I threw in a couple of head butts and when I got the choke, I held on a little longer than I should have. Let's just say that I didn't feel him tap.
2He tapped, I let go, and then he tried to continue. I grabbed on to him again, and I told him right in his ear, "I know you tapped. You know you tapped. But you want to continue? We'll continue." I told the ref, "We know he tapped, but let it go. We're going to continue." I grabbed Shamrock and started to yell in his ear, "Go! Go!" He must have felt by the tone of my voice that I wasn't going to let go a second time." He's like, "No, no - you're right, I tapped."
3I can't afford to get hit. I'm not punch-proof
4Watch you mouth you call me lame.
5I go to Disneyland!
6Hi, my name is Royce Gracie. I'm a 4th degree black belt in Gracie Jiu-Jitsu and I'm here to prove that my family's fighting style is the best. (introduction at the first Ultimate Fighting Championship)
7A black belt only covers two inches of your as* - you have to cover the rest.
8Jiu-Jitsu is like a philosophy. It helps me learn how to face life.
9The idea of jiu-jitsu is to give the little guy a chance to beat the big guy.
10Don't hurt your opponent if you don't have to, submit him.
11I would fight the devil himself if he stepped into the Octagon.
