At UFC 112 Renzo Gracie met Matt Huges in a fight that saw him finished in the third round. Four years have passed and the two will meet again. This time however, it will be under more favorable circumstances for Gracie.


The super fight will take place next year at the Abu Dhabi Combat Club (ADCC). The match up has been confirmed by ADCC’s Guy Neivens. 

The former UFC champ Hughes has some experience at the grappling extravaganza. Hughes competed in ADCC 2000 in the U99KG division  where he beat Ricardo  Almeida and Jeremy Horn before losing to the beastly Jeff Monson.  Gracie won the 1998 and the 2000 event in his division. 

So now we have Matt Hughes, Chael Sonnen and Brendan Schaub all trying their hand at some competitive grappling. Is this a thing? I don’t really care to watch it. I respect the art but for me it is like watching golf. Do you enjoy events like Metamoris and ADCC?
