ONE FIGHTING CHAMPIONSHIP™ ADDS THREE MEMBERS OF THE LEGENDARY GRACIE FAMILY TO ONE FC: PRIDE OF A NATION

PhilBoxing.com


ROLLES GRACIE VS TONY “THE GUN” BONELLO IGOR GRACIE VS JUNG HWAN CHA GREGOR GRACIE VS NICHOLAS “THE APPRENTICE” MANN

TICKETS ON SALE NOW AT WWW.TICKETNET.COM.PH


26 July 2012 – Singapore: ONE Fighting Championship™ (ONE FC) has announced that the legendary Gracie family will be represented in a big way at ONE FC: Pride on a Nation on 31 August. Rolles Gracie, Igor Gracie and Gregor Gracie have all been added to the stacked fight card for ONE FC: Pride of a Nation. All three fighters bear a family name that needs no introduction to the world of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA). In Manila, the three members of the “royal family of MMA” will be fighting to honor the legacy of the Gracie family name.

Tickets for ONE FC: Pride of a Nation are on sale now through TicketNet at www.ticketnet.com.ph or at all TicketNet outlets located at the SM department store customer service area and at the SMART Araneta Coliseum ticket booth. For inquiries and reservations, please call +63 911 5555. Tickets are priced at Php 4,770 for VIP experience seating that includes exclusive Red Carpet entrance as well as access to the VIP lounge, followed by Php 2,120, Php 1,060, Php 690, Php 530 and Php 215 respectively. All applicable service charges apply.

Rolles Gracie was born into the royal family of BJJ and MMA, the legendary Gracie family, and is the grandson of Carlos Gracie Sr., the founder of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ). Rolles is physically the largest fighter in the history of the Gracie clan, standing at 193cm tall. On 31 August, Rolles will face his toughest test to date when he squares off against top Australian fighter, Tony “The Gun” Bonello. Bonello is considered one of the top submission specialists in the heavyweight division, with 15 of his 16 victories coming via submission. Bonello will look to notch another submission victory in Manila when he makes his ONE FC debut.

Igor Gracie is a Bellator Fighting Championship and Strikeforce veteran who holds an MMA record of five wins and two losses with four wins coming by way of submission. He is a 3rd degree Black Belt in BJJ and has a list of grappling credentials that is nothing short of extraordinary. Igor is a four-time Rio de Janeiro State Champion, Pan American Championship Silver Medalist and a two time Brazilian National Champion, just to name a few. He knows that a victory over the KO specialist Jung Hwan Cha at ONE FC: Pride of a Nation will get him one step closer to his ultimate goal of becoming a ONE FC champion.

Gregor Gracie is a talented grappler who is both the Pan-American and Brazilian National BJJ Champion. Gregor has chalked up a series of impressive MMA wins since his successful debut in 2007. With the exception of one win by decision, the BJJ black belt has ended all his other fights via submission. Gregor will have to add a few more dimensions to his game when he steps in the ONE FC cage against Nicholas “The Apprentice” Mann. Mann is no stranger to Filipino MMA fans, given that all of his MMA fights have been on Filipino soil. He will look to continue his four fight win streak when he steps up to fight Gregor Gracie on 31 August 2012.

Mixed Martial Arts and BJJ legend Renzo Gracie stated, “Rolles, Igor and Gregor Gracie have never trained so hard for a fight in their lives. All three of my students understand that ONE FC in Manila will be the largest MMA event in the history of the Philippines. They are embracing this experience whole-heartedly and are training exceptionally hard to achieve victory in front of 16,500 fans. The fans in Manila will get the chance to see the next generation of the Gracie family dominate the world of MMA once again.”
