Renzo Gracie has signed with One Championship. A potential opponent for Renzo’s debut might be Kazushi Sakuraba the ‘’Gracie hunter’’. The two fighters met back in 2000 at Pride FC 10. Those were the golden days. Sakuraba won the fight after breaking Renzo’s arm with a kimura lock. With both fighters chasing 50 years of age and it is hard to say they are in their prime.
Chatri Sityotdong, CEO of ONE Championship confirmed it on TheBodyLockMMA by saying: “He [Renzo] leaked it, but Renzo Gracie will make his debut in ONE Championship. He’s going to fight Sakuraba.”
The two veterans reportedly might end up facing each other in an MMA fight or a grappling match. MMA rules might make a more entertaining fight since they already duked it out in grappling at Metamoris 5. Unfortunately, it was not that exciting. A fight date has not been announced yet, so stay tuned.
