The UFC has added another member of the Strikeforce roster, signing Roger Gracie to a fight contract. Gracie is 4-1 in his MMA career, but holds a record of 65-7 while competing in Brazilian jiu-jitsu and submission grappling matches.
“Roger Gracie signs with UFC, might train with Anderson Silva before his first bout,” the Twitter account of GRACIEMAG reported late Friday night.
Gracie suffered his first MMA loss in 2011, as Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal delivered a first round knockout to Gracie. The 30-year-old is a multi-time winner of the World Jiu-Jitsu Championships. No opponent has been announced for his UFC debut.
