9/28 Sengoku - Roger Gracie Out!?!

Wednesday 17 September 2008

Adcombat.com is reporting that Roger Gracie injured a rib in training and is out of action for at least 8 weeks. They are further saying that he is unlikely to fight again in 2008, meaning that a comback in November event is also out of the question.

I have not yet seen an official announcement in Japan, but if Sengoku is looking for a replacement it would most likely be announced at the same time.

Sherdog has received confirmation of Roger Gracie's injury http://www.sherdog.com/news/news/gracie-withdraws-from-sengoku-14431
