Rolles Gracie returns at Ring of Combat 24

Rolles Gracie, the son of Rolls Gracie, will return to action on April 17 at Ring of Combat 24 in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

Gracie's previous and only MMA fight was for cousin Renzo's Pitbulls team in an IFL event in September 2007 when he submitted Sam Halloway with a rear-naked choke in one minute and 49 seconds.

Gracie is a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belt and won a silver medal at the 2007 ADCC submission wrestling championships in the over 99 kg division. UFC veteran Fabricio Werdum came in first place.

On April 17, Gracie (1-0) will take on the promotion's 2007 "Beast of the Northeast" light-heavyweight tournament champion Ricardo Romero (6-1) in a heavyweight bout.

Ring of Combat 24 also features "The Ultimate Fighter" competitor Dante Rivera and UFC veteran Sean Salmon.
