Rickson Gracie: So he came into the ring and we start to fighting. Immediately I felt his intention to hit me. Immediately I clinched, put him on the ground and started to punch, and he turned back. But different than a normal event, where I’d put him to sleep or whatever, in that particular case I have to showcase his punishment.
So I was not happy to just put him to sleep. So I punched him in the face, broke his nose, make him bleed all cut up. And at that point when I felt like he was just smashed up, he gave me his back and I put him to sleep. And then I let him sleep in his own blood, and then I told them to let the press in.
