GRACIEMAG.com broke the news this Wednesday of Vinicius “Draculino” Magalhães’s imminent Strikeforce debut. Although his opponent has not yet been confirmed, the black belt is confirmed to fight on August 21.
Draculino was a standout at the main gentle art competitions during his day and produced a number of top black belts, among them Romulo Barral. In MMA, though, the master at Gracie Barra Houston has only appeared twice, and his Strikeforce fight will uneven his record. Draculino’s win came over Kleber Gaudino in the Heat promotion in 2003, by way of submission. His loss came against Fabio Mello at Storm Samurai.
