He doesn’t know why but Royce Gracie cried in his Raisin Bran this morning because of Mackenzie Dern. While Gracie wonders why his allergies are acting up and questions the emotions he feels on the inside, the jiu-jitsu world watched Dern upset Gabi Garcia at Abu Dhabi World Pro 2015. Somebody give Royce a hug today and tell him everything is going to be okay.
Jiu-Jitsu works and it’s okay to cry about it during breakfast.
In jiu-jitsu sometimes skill can overcome size and after five previous attempts Dern finally climbed Mount Garcia and walked away with her hand raised. The loss was Garcia’s first since 2009. After beating Garcia, Dern would bring gold back to the USA and won the women’s open weight finals at Abu Dhabi World Pro.
