Rolles Gracie has recently inked a multi-fight contract with the promotion, with his Octagon debut set to take place against Mustapha Al-Turk at UFC 109.
Sources close to the upcoming but recently confirmed the news in a report on MMAWeekly.com.
The event is expected to take place on February 6, 2010, from Las Vegas.
A second degree black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Gracie stands at 6’4″ tall and weighs in right around the 240 pound mark. With an undefeated record of 3-0, all three of Rolles’ victories have come by way of first round submission.
Al-Turk will be looking to get things back on track following consecutive defeats in the UFC at the hands of Check Kongo and Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic. The bout against Gracie will undoubtedly be a must-win situation for Mustapha, who currently holds a career record of 6-5.
