Roger Gracie signs with the UFC?

@GracieMag today announced on twitter that Roger Gracie (4-1) has signed for the UFC. His sole MMA loss came last September against ‘King Mo’ Lawal, who was recently popped for PEDs, in Strikeforce.

However, Mauro Ranallo has reported on twitter that Roger Gracie is still with Strikeforce

“Roger Gracie (93kg) signs with #UFC, might train with @SpiderAnderson before his first bout” – GracieMag

Roger Gracie has won the IBJJF World Jiu-Jitsu Championships 10 times as a black belt, with three of those victories in Open Weight competition. Gracie has also won the Super-Heavy division 6 times.


According to Mauro Ranallo via twitter,

“Reports of Roger Gracie signing with UFC are innacurate. He confirmed to @TheMMAShow that Gracie remains with Strikeforce.”

“My apologies! It was Dana White that confirmed to @TheMMAShow that Roger Gracie remains with Strikeforce”
