Rolles Gracie Injured, Out of WSOF 3

wsof3

Rolles Gracie has sprained his wrist in training for the World Series of Fighting 3.  The injury has scratched him from his planned debut bout against Dave Huckaba on June 14th.  Huckaba will not face a replacement opponent but will be used on a future card. MMAFighting.com reports that Lyle “Fancy Pants” Beerbohm and Jacob Volkmann have been promoted from the undercard to the NBC Sports broadcast.

Rolles recently gave an interview to Fighters.com, stating how eager he was to fight closer to home after fighting his last 4 fights across Canada and Asia.  The event would have been Rolles first stateside fight since April of 2011.

    Volkmann/ Beerbohm might be a more exciting fight anyway, glad I get to see it on the main card
