If you're an avid Joe Rogan fan, you've probably heard the UFC commentator and podcaster reference Eddie Bravo a lot when speaking about Brazilian jiu-jitsu. Bravo is a third-degree black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu and also trains Rogan.

Bravo has a submission grappling record of 5 wins, one loss and one draw in his seven competitive bouts. He most recently competed against Royler Gracie in 2014 at Metamoris 3, which was the second time the American had faced Gracie in a submission grappling contest. Bravo managed to submit Gracie during the ADCC World Championship in Brazil back in 2003. In their most recent bout, the contest ended in a draw during the Los Angeles-based event.

Eddie Bravo's other submission grappling wins came against Gustavo Dantas, Alan Teo, Shawn Krysa and Mark Ashton. The Brazilian jiu-jitsu genius has only lost one submission grappling bout, with Leo Vieira beating the American on points at ADCC World Championship 2003.

Since training together, Joe Rogan and Eddie Bravo have clearly become close friends, with the duo previously discussing conspiracy theories on the JRE podcast. The two martial arts enthusiasts have also co-hosted Rogan's famous fight companion podcasts, which recently returned for the latest UFC Fight Night in Paris with Eddie Bravo once again joining the show.

While giving a speech after accepting his Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt, Joe Rogan stated:
