Helio G and Igor V Exchange Pleasantries
Vovchanchyn is a physical specimen, built like an ox. One of his strongest features is his hands. Vovchanchyn recalled meeting the then 96-year-old Helio Gracie backstage at the Pride FC Grand Prix 2000, when the famed founder of Gracie Brazilian Jiu Jitsu complimented him on his strength. Vovchanchyn respectfully shook Gracie’s hand and told him that he has “watched all of his videos and learned from him.” That’s when the Godfather of BJJ grabbed Vovchanchyn’s other hand and said, “if I had fists like yours, I wouldn’t bother with grappling at all.”
