When ONE FC 5 fires up in the Philippines next month the organization will boast one of its best lineups to date, not to mention a card featuring a rarely-if-ever seen situation where three brothers will all take to the cage. Were that not enough, the trio also belong to the most famed family in Mixed Martial Arts – the Gracies.
According to an official announcement from ONE FC, Rolles Gracie will join siblings Igor Gracie and Gregor Gracie on the August 31 show. The former will take on Tony Bonello at the event, while the latter two will take on Jung Hwan Cha and Nicholas Mann respectively.
Gracie (Gregor) is 6-2 thus far in his career while Mann is 4-1 and has come out with his hand raised in four straight. Meanwhile, Gracie will be attempting to bounce back from defeat, seeing his own four-fight winning streak snapped last month by way of decision.
The 5-2 Gracie (Igor) has found success in a quartet of consecutive clashes with all of the victories involving a submission. Cha is only 8-6-1 though the Korean competitor does own a win against Ryo Chonan.
Finally, Gracie (Rolles) is 6-1 with success against the likes of Lee Mein and Bob Sapp. He will face the toughest test in the group, battling 16-1-1 Bonello who has been out of action for more than two years but owns fifteen finishes in his sixteen total triumphs.
