Nobody can resist Bubba’s submission!
It’s not your fault if you’ve never heard of Bubba Gracie. Though Mr. Bubba really works for the Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Academy, he’s not so famous as Royce Gracie, Renzo Gracie and the other members of the family. Bubba Gracie is a grappling dummie who, according to Rener Gracie, “never complains, never taps out, shows up early, stays late, actually he never leaves.”
So one day it occurred to Rener Gracie that Bubba the Reliable would not mind being a part of a hilarious prank. Well, in fact, Bubba inspired the prank but didn’t actually take part in it. It was Brian Ortega, the Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Academy instructor, who played Bubba’s role while Bubba rested under the table.
It’s really fun to watch people’s reaction when they try to carry the fake Bubba and the “dummy” grabs them. Among those who got pranked were Rener’s wife, WWE star Eve Torres (the video was made three years before their marriage), guitarist from the hardcore metal band “Biohazard” Billy Graziadei and even the Grand Master Rorion Gracie.
