Resurfaced video reveals late Paul Walker was a huge fan of BJJ in the UFC

Late Hollywood actor Paul Walker is known for his role in the ‘Fast and Furious.’ However, he had a lesser-known but profound passion for Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

A recent video resurfaced where of Walker attending the UFC 60 event. In the video, he explains how much he loves BJJ and thinks it’s important in MMA. Walker’s thoughts on the sport reveal a deep appreciation for the ground game and its integral role in the UFC.

Expressing himself, Walker said: “Bottom line is I want to see a submission tonight. And then we have to remember, I think without Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, I think UFC would be incomplete. And I just want to see a good fight. I like the ground game, so I want to see a submission.”

UFC 60: Hughes vs. Gracie took place in 2006, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. The main event featured a non-title catchweight (175 lb) bout between the reigning UFC welterweight champion Matt Hughes and the legendary UFC Hall of Famer Royce Gracie.

The event garnered significant attention, achieving a remarkable 620,000 pay-per-view buys. This marked a historic milestone as the best-selling pay-per-view in UFC history at that time.

Paul Walker’s words highlight his genuine enthusiasm for the art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and its significance in the world of mixed martial arts.

Walker’s commitment to BJJ extended beyond mere words. He was a brown belt at the time of his passing.

While Walker is widely remembered for his charismatic presence on the big screen, his commitment to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu reveals a deep love for martial arts.
