The World Series of Fighting is making their WSOF 5 card a Gracie family affair by adding a trio from the MMA family. MMA veterans Rolles and Gregor Gracie (7-3) will take on Derrick Mehmen (15-5) and Rich Patishnock (5-1) in their respective bouts, while Neiman Gracie will make his professional debut against Darren Costa (0-1). WSOF officials announced the match-ups earlier this evening.
Rolles Gracie (8-1) and Mehmen’s bout will land on the NBC Sports Network’s main card, while Gregor and Neiman will land on the promotion’s undercard.
WSOF 5 will be headlined by a heavyweight fight between Andrei Arlovski and Mike Kyle. Anthony Johnson was originally supposed to face Kyle but was pulled after an injury, “Rumble” is expected to return for WSOF 6 in Miami, Florida. WSOF 5 will take place at the Revel Casino Hotel in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
Tickets for the event are currently on sale and are priced from $29. The event will air live via the NBC Sports Network. More bouts are expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
