Wrist injury forces Rolles Gracie off World Series of Fighting 3 card

Esther Lin

The recent spate of injuries and fight fallouts hasn't just affected the Ultimate Fighting Championship and Bellator. World Series of Fighting has been affected as well.

Heavyweight Rolles Gracie was scheduled to make his WSOF debut against veteran Dave Huckaba at the June 14 WSOF3 event in Las Vegas. But according to multiple company sources, Gracie has suffered a sprained wrist and won't be able to compete, forcing the bout off the card.

As a result, the lightweight bout between Jacob Volkmann and Lyle Beerbohm, slated for the undercard, has been bumped up to the NBC Sports Network live broadcast.

WSOF will not look for a replacement opponent for Huckaba, who will fight instead on a future card.
