Roger Gracie injured - out of ADCC Drysdale Fight

source: gracie mag

Roger Gracie dropped out of ADCC 2009.

I was following Roger struggle to be part of the event for quite a while. He would face current ADCC absolute champion Robert Drysdale in the very anticipated superfight.

The current superfight champion got mumps recently. The disease complicated and went down (if you know what I mean).

He fought against that, and after a couple of weeks of a compulsory rest tried to get back training anyways, but unfortunately twisted his knee badly in a way he won’t be able to heal in time for the event.

“I hope Roger recovers fully,” wishes ADCC committee Guy Neivens, who says they are at this point considering replacements.

Vinicius Magalhaes is the logical replacement, he already has a winning record vs. Drysdaledeserves the shot at a good payday
