Gracie and Aoki will be the featured bout on a card with BJJ and MMA athletes competing in a no-gi format, which will happen on June 9 in Los Angeles.
“Someone in a fight is always sharper,” said Metamoris founder Ralek Gracie said in the release. “And now, the fighter who controls the bout with technique, the fighter who shows more varied and frequent submission acquisition, will get his hand raised.”
The event will be the promotion’s second and will air on Pay-Per-View. In addition to Gracie and Aoki, the event will host five more fights, including matches between Braulio Estima and Rodolfo Vieira, Andre Galvao and Rafael Lovato Jr., Roberto “Cyborg” Abreu and Brendan Schaub, Mackenzie Dern and Michelle Nicolini, and finally Bill “The Grill” Cooper vs. Ryan Hall.
The Pay-Per-View will be available for $19.95, and will feature a “multi-camera format to deliver all angles accompanied by an experienced commentary team calling the action,” according to the promotion’s founder. The broadcast begins at 4 p.m. PT, and doors for the event open at 3 p.m. PT.
Tickets will be available for purchase from April 22 through Ticketmaster.
