ufc-crowd-4.jpgFUEL TV tonight at 10 p.m. ET debuts a new half-hour special entitled “UFC 101: Gracie Jiu-Jitsu.”

Featuring Rener and Ryron Gracie, FUEL TV officials said the special will explain “the core positions, principles and techniques of the martial art that’s been made famous in the Ultimate Fighting Championship.”

“In Brazilian jiu-jitsu, we aim to win the fight in a series of phases, including closing the distance, executing the takedown, achieving the dominant position and finishing the fight,” Rener stated. “Our grandfather once told us that in a fight, whoever manages the distance manages the damage that can be done.”

Rener and Ryron are members of the famed Gracie family, the clan often refereed to as the “First Family of Mixed Martial Arts.”

Royce Gracie won his first 11 UFC fights and earned the first two tournament titles in the promotion’s near-20-year history.

Renzo and Rolles Gracie later followed suit as UFC fighters, albeit with less success. Roger Gracie makes his octagon debut at July’s UFC 162 event.

“UFC 101: Gracie Jiu-Jitsu” is the third educational UFC 101 special produced by FUEL TV and follows “UFC 101: The Fundamentals” and “UFC 101: The Moves.”
