First of all, thank you very much for going to the effort to set this up. It's really appreciated and thank you for taking time out of your schedule to do this for the site. You know, what else can I say.


1) What is the atmosphere training in a Gracie camp? What are the calibur of fighters in your camp and are there any standouts (other than yourself) who you feel are worth mentioning.

2) You gave in my opinion a horrible heelhook to Donaldson, I'm a cringeworthy guy so maybe i'm wrong but looks like you wanted to take the guys leg off, any story behind this?

3) Who do you think would make a good match up for in your first UFC fight? Anybody you are particularly looking for/want to fight in the division.

4) Realistically what do you think your chances are in the division, how long until you expect to be challenging for the belt?

5) What methods/routines would you recommend to those who wish to start training to fight on the level that you are? How much dedication does it involve, how can your average Joe go about learning and then fighting MMA?

6) Do you feel that raining at a Gracie camp gives you any advantage in any area of MMA? If so which ones? What have you learnt from training at a gracie camp that you can pass on to others.

7) Where do you see yourself in five years time? In which orgnasation, do you feel you will hold any belts by this time?

8) Fluctuating in weight classes? Is this an option for you? Do you feel capable of doing so? If so where and when, will this ever be an option that you would consider, dependant on your results at the time.

It would be nice to get some more questions ...The deadline is this Friday because Ariel can only do the interview on the weekend and I will be on vacation for 2 weeks so wanted to get it done before I left unless you think we should keep it posted for a couple more weeks. Ariel is very cool he will answer whenever we want him to ..

Hello, Ariel

1. What are your thoughts about the Rubber Guard and its related submission moves such as the Gogoplata?

2. Here in the United States, Eddie Bravo is an avid practitioner of the Rubber Guard. If you are familiar with Eddie, what are your thoughts on his techniques? Would you say that they are effective techniques?

3. How long have you been training/studying Mixed Martial Arts?

4. Do currently take any dietary supplements such as whey protein, creatine etc?

Thank you, Ariel and the Ryan Gracie Camp for your contribution to Forums.

Just got a few questions, to get to know you better.
(I admit it, I don't know a lot about you )

1. How many hours/days a week do you train?
2. Do you have another job at the side or can you focus 100% at the sport as of now?
3. What are your most common ways of ending a fight? Coming from a Gracie camp, one would think it's some kind of submission?
4. What do you feel is the "worst" thing about fighting several guys in one night?
Exhaustion? Injuries? Not knowing who you're fighting next?

Thnx for taking the time to answer, and make sure you won't become a cocky bastard when you get to the big league!
