well i guess that means they want to build Gracie rather than use his name to put someone else over.

That is very cool...haven't had a gracie in the UFC since Royce. Somehow I bet this will be in on a prelim though.

David Weiß -  Is Rolles a close relative to Rolls?



Rolles is Roll's son I believe

Rolls in his Dad, his brothers are Igor and Gregor Gracie of course. He's as bad as it gets and is just like Roger, a HUGE GRACIE. Really nice guy, technical and moves like a damm light weight. He is going to be a great force in this division. He's not new to mma as he's been training for a while now. Crazy how this guy was under the radar for sooo long. Trust me. He is for real.

 Didn't know he was training with Greg Jackson also (along with Renzo).   I'm looking forward to this.

I found an article not too long ago that said Renzo and Jackson have formed an alliance for MMA. It was on the website of the guy who manages all of Renzo's fighters. I'll see if I can find it again.

Not to be a Negative Nancy, but I'm not sure either of these counts as a "big" fight. Why is Al-Turk still in the UFC anyway? The guy is worse than Justin McCully.

 Rolles name is pronounced "Hollis" and yes he's the legendary Rolls Gracie's son.

He has been doing BJJ and sub grappling for quite awhile.  He had his debut in ADCC in 2001 where he lost to Jon Olav Einemo after beating Tsuyoshi Kohsaka.  He started MMA more recently.

Igor and Gregor are his brothers, but I believe Gregor is not really a Gracie at all.  He, Igor and Rolls share a mom, but he has a different dad.

Rolles is one of the main instructors at Renzo's and has a basketball player build.

He lost to Marcelo Garcia in the 2007 Absolute on a very weird but fast wrist-lock.

I think it's pronounced more like "Holez". Also, Marcelo popped his elbow, not his wrist.

Renzo + Jackson is one heck of a training camp. About time we saw a Gracie back in the Octagon, too. I hope Dana gives the event it's due recognition.

I saw Rolles and Roger roll a few times and the were very evenly matched, Roger would tire Rolles out eventually but Rolles is the real deal.

Was wondering when (or, "if"), we'd see another Gracie in the UFC again...?
