A night on the town has landed the Gracie clan in some serious trouble.

 

First reported by the New York Post, MMA legend Renzo Gracie is facing charges of gang assault in the second degree after he and his party allegedly sent a nightclub doorman to the hospital with a broken arm. The group, which included fellow fighter Igor Gracie, had just arrived at 1 OAK, an exclusive club located a mile west of The Renzo Gracie Academy in Manhattan. Sherdog was able to acquire an eyewitness statement detailing the incident.

 

According to the witness, Gracie arrived at the club in a group of approximately seven men and immediately went to the front of the line.

 

Gracie then became involved in a confrontation with what the witness described as the doorman. Things escalated from there, as Gracie's group allegedly squared off with a group of 1-Oak bouncers. According to the witness, Gracie at one point had the doorman in full mount, while another one of his group hit a different bouncer with a construction cone.

 

The fracas spilled into the street, with more punches being thrown. Eventually the police arrived and arrested everyone in Gracie's party, while an ambulance came for the bouncer who had been mounted by Gracie, according to the witness. It was unclear as to why Gracie and his group were originally upset.

 

After Gracie was arrested by responding officers of the New York Police Department's 10th Precinct, FOX Sports' Marc Raimondi reported the Jiu Jitsu master could face a 15-year sentence in state prison. A source close to the situation confirmed with MMA Fighting that Gracie was originally set to be released by 2 p.m. ET on Monday, but that the arraignment had been delayed to later that evening.

 

Largely removed from competition, Renzo Gracie has spent much of the past decade mentoring former and current UFC champions like Frankie Edgar, Georges St-Pierre and Chris Weidman. In 2012 Gracie was involved in another incident in New York City when he dispatched a pair of would-be muggers, live-tweeting the action while dolling out some street justice.

I'm not sure what's more stupid, that video in it's entirety because it shows absolutely nothing... or the weirdo shooting it who was about to nut in his pants over Renzo Gracie.

 

I'm afraid of what that guy would do if he saw Royce.

So the bouncer's are innocent?

Bouncers can attack who they want, and get away with it?

Just because you lose a fight doesn't mean you didn't start it or deserve to be charged with a crime as well as Renzo.

Those bouncers should be all fired and have there teeth kicked out of there ****in mouths to think they can be goofs for no reason.

 

Hopefully that guy has permanent injuries who's in the hospital.

I've been jumped by three bouncers before... but it was because I stomped the teeth out of one of them by himself prior to that. lol

 

Bouncers are assclowns, but so is Renzo. So if I were to watch this live, I would've been rooting for the double KO.
