Gracie vs. Wiuff completes 'Sengoku 5' card

2005 ADCC grappling champion Roger Gracie's "Sengoku 5" opponent will be YAMMA champ Travis Wiuff, World Victory Road announced today. The event takes place Sept. 28 at the Yoyogi National Gymnasium in Tokyo, Japan.

Gracie (2-0) fights out of West London, England and has submitted his two opponents in the first round. Gracie tapped out Ron "H2O" Waterman at BodogFight in December 2006 and in May 2008 returned to MMA with a rear-naked choke submission over Pancrase veteran Yuki Kondo.

Wiuff (52-11) made his debut for World Victory Road at "Sengoku 3" in June, knocking out Kazuyuki Fujita at 1:24 of the first round. Wiuff has also won his last ten fights, which includes beating Marcelo Pereira, Chris Tuchscherer and Ricco Rodriguez in one night on April 11.
