With five wins, two losses, and one draw, Daniel Gracie recently returned to fighting after four years on the sidelines.
His latest win came in November at Israel Fighting Championship, where he submitted Martin Woicik with a first-round rear-naked choke.
Now the Gracie has another fight lined up, at the Bellator light heavyweight GP to take place in 2011 in the United States.
“The Gracie family has great influence over the MMA we know today and I’m pround to say that that history continues when Daniel steps into the Bellator cage to try for the light heavyweight-tournament title. The return of a Gracie to a tournament-format event is something I’m excited about seeing,” said promoter Bjorn Rebney.
“All I’m thinking about is winning this tournament. I know in MMA anything can happen, but one thing I guarantee is that I’m going to put on a great show, you can bet on it,” says Daniel, who trains with Renzo Gracie.
