It looks as though a submission grappling match between legends Matt Hughes and Renzo Gracie has been cancelled, due to the latter being injured.

The two were scheduled to face one another at this year’s Abu Dhabi Combat Club Submission Wrestling World Championship, which will take place in Sao Paulo on August 29th and 30th.

According to a report from MMA Fighting.com, however, Gracie has injured his knee and will have to undergo surgery.

Hughes and Gracie fought at UFC 112 in 2010, and Hughes won the bout via third round, stoppage.
