Gracie Pro had struggled a great deal to find a worthy follow up to Roger Gracie v Buchecha. It seemed as tho finding another Gracie to headline would be incentive enough for a while there even though Clark Gracie vs Durinho arguably just didn’t pack the punch of deciding an all time GOAT.
However things took a turn – according to multiple sources Clark Gracie was forced to leave the card due to a minor knee injury.
Here UFC fighter and bjj black belt Sergio Moraes stepped in.
The match will run 15 minutes, with the weight limit set at 82.3kg, and IBJJF rules.
In a co main event Fernando Tererê will take on 2007 European champion Raphael Abi-Rihan, who won a world masters title as recently as 2016.
