Roger Gracie Eyes Sengoku Return In March
“I’m training to fight MMA now in March, at Sengoku, Japan. It’s 90% right but it isn’t confirmed yet and I can’t guarantee. But I believe that will happen. I’m training in my gym. If I do fight in March, I’ll continue doing my training in London and four weeks before the fight I believe that I should go to NY with Renzo (Gracie). I think that I develop a lot my game after every fight. This will be the third fight in MMA and I believe I’ll be better every fight, not only physically but also mentally, with more experience in a different way in the ring. The more I compete, the more I overcome myself.”
- ADCC Champion and undefeated submission ace Roger Gracie believes he’ll be fighting again for Sengoku in March. The heavyweight is seen by many as the next great Gracie.
