Rolles Gracie at UFC 109
A group of new fights have been confirmed for possibly the biggest ONE FC show yet coming up in August in the Philippines.

Among the fights confirmed for the upcoming ONE FC: Pride of a Nation card are three Gracie brothers all competing on the same night.

Heavyweight Rolles Gracie returns to action after a successful ONE FC debut to face Australian submission specialist Tony Bonello.

His brother Igor Gracie will make his ONE FC debut on the same night when he faces Jung Hwan Cha, while the third Gracie on the card will be Gregor Gracie as he looks to bounce back from a stunning loss in his last ONE FC fight when he faces Nicholas Mann.

“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,” said Renzo Gracie, who trains all three of the Gracie fighters.

“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.”

Also added to the upcoming ONE FC show is a bout between Eduard Folayang and two-time ONE FC veteran Felipe Enomoto.

Both fighters will be looking to get back on track after losses in each of their last fights respectively.

ONE FC: Pride of a Nation takes place on Aug 31 from the Smart Araneta Coliseum in Manila in the Philippines.
