The Gracie name is the most famous in MMA since the inception of the UFC in 1993.
Where Royce Gracie won the one-night tournament, winning every fight by submission.
Now the man carrying the torch for the Gracie family in MMA is 11-2, Neiman Gracie.
He’s set to fight Logan Storley at Bellator 274 on February 19, 2022.
The 12-1 Storley only has one loss on his record to current Bellator Welterweight Champion, Yaroslav Amosov by split decision at Bellator 252.
Storley arguably gave Amosov his toughest fight to date, almost submitting Amosov by rear-naked choke in the third round.
The big question is: can Gracie takedown Storley?
Which is easier said than done.
Storley is a 4 time All-American wrestler.
Gracie was able to defeat Ed Ruth who is 3 time NCAA national champion.
Winning via rear-naked choke at Bellator 212.
So there’s no doubt that Gracie has a good chance of getting the submission victory over Storley.
Like all fights including high-level grapplers, I will be looking forward to watching this fight.
