Readers praised it and implored to have it back – the GRACIEMAG at the Worlds Blog returns this year and is set to drop on the coming Monday, the 16th of May.
Prior to launch day, though, reporter Ivan Trindade dropped a bomb on GRACIEMAG.com: Roger Gracie’s presence on the mats in Long Beach is less than certain.
“I’m not sure if I’ll be able to compete this year yet,” revealed the Gracie Barra athlete, from London.
“I suffered a leg injury and have been out of training for five weeks. I just started training again now. I’m already training hard and doing my best to be 100% by the Worlds. If I’m feeling well, I’ll fight for sure,” added the three-time absolute world champion.
