The legendary Royce Gracie is officially on Guam.

After months of planning, the pioneer of MMA and jiu-jitsu alike came gliding through the Guam Airport with a giant smile despite it being a quarter past midnight, Guam time.

Fans expecting the legend had their phones ready for pictures and those unexpected had to double-take as the most famous of the renowned Gracie family wandered through.

“The flight was easy,” said Gracie with his award winning smile. “Finding time to get out here was the hard part, but I like it so far!”

Gracie’s four-day stay is booked with events, kicking off Saturday with the GSPN Kids Jiu-Jitsu tournament at the Agana Shopping Center, go time 1 pm.

Aside from the scheduled events, Gracie admitted he was ‘open to surprise’ as far as what else Guam has in store during his short stay.

Anywhere Gracie goes for the next four days will surely have a crowd in anticipation seeking handshakes, autographs, and selfies. But to Gracie, the added attention is most welcomed.

“That’s good, I welcome that! I feed off of that!” said the legend.
