Report: Rolles Gracie Signs With ONE FC, Fighting Bob Sapp Next


By FCF Staff

Just days removed from the news that ONE FC has signed the accomplished veteran Renato “Babalu” Sobral, heavyweight Rolles Gracie is reporting that he’s signed with the promotion as well.

Gracie made the announcement via his official Twitter account, before relaying that he will fight Bob Sapp in his promotional debut, February 11th in Jakarta, Indonesia.

The decorated jiu-jitsu competitor is coming off back-to-back victories over Braden Bice and Lee Mein, after Gracie was stopped by Joey Beltran, in his one and only UFC appearance in February, 2010.

Sapp (11-9) will be looking to end a three fight losing skid in MMA competition. Most recently, the massive fighter and Pride veteran was stopped by Mario Perak, while fighting for a Croatian promotion in December.

ONE FC also has confirmed event for March 31st in Singapore and April 27 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
