Another member of the Gracie family is about to launch a career in mixed martial arts. Following in the footsteps of his brothers, cousins and uncles, this week Robson Gracie Jr. signed a contract to debut in the Bellator organization.
Robsinho will be making his debut in the sport, although date and opponent have yet to be determined. A black-belt in BJJ, the youngest brother of Renzo Gracie has sharpened his boxing at traditional Rio de Janeiro school Nobre Arte, on top of training MMA and no-gi BJJ at Renzo Gracie Academy in New York.
By signing with Bellator, Robsinho joins his cousins Neiman and Khonry Gracie in making up the family’s new generation of MMA fighters.
