The Gracie train is coming to the Philippines.

Three members of the famed Gracie family will compete on the upcoming ONE FC: Pride of a Nation card on Aug. 31 in Manila, Philippines, the promotion announced on Friday.

Rolles Gracie, Gregor Gracie, Igor Gracie have all been added to next month's card in separate bouts. Other fights already announced for the card are: Bibiano Fernandes vs. Gustavo Falciroli, Soa Palelei vs. Andrei Arlovski, Eric Kelly vs. Jens Pulver and Phil Baroni vs. Rodrigo Ribeiro.

Rolles Gracie (6-1), a former UFC heavyweight, will meet Australian Tony Bonello (16-1-1, 1 NC); Igor Gracie (5-2) will face Jung Hwan Cha (8-6) in welterweight action; and Gregor Gracie (6-2) will take on Nicholas Mann (4-1), who enters the fight riding a four-fight winning streak.

"Rolles, Igor and Gregor Gracie have never trained so hard for a fight in their lives," Renzo Gracie stated in a press release issued by the promotion. "All three of my students understand that ONE FC in Manila will be the largest MMA event in the history of the Philippines. They are embracing this experience whole-heartedly and are training exceptionally hard to achieve victory in front of 16,500 fans. The fans in Manila will get the chance to see the next generation of the Gracie family dominate the world of MMA once again."

The card will take place at the Smart Araneta Coliseum in Manila.
