Metamoris to Feature Renzo Gracie “Rematch” With Kazushi Sakuraba — Plus, Rory MacDonald

Metamoris has announced their full lineup for their fifth event, to be held November 22 in Long Beach, CA — and it includes a rematch of two MMA legends.

Renzo Gracie and Kazushi Sakuraba, whose epic battle headlined PRIDE 10 back in 2000, will meet again on the white mats of Metamoris for a submissions-only match.

The rest of the event has some star power, too — including current UFC welterweight contender Rory MacDonald (pictured above):

Rory MacDonald vs JT Torres

Yuri Simoes vs Rafael Lovato, Jr

Vinny Magalhaes vs Kevin Casey

Garry Tonon vs Zak Maxwell

McDonald’s opponent Torres is one of most decorated young Brazilian jiu-jitsu competitors in the US. The 25 year old Atos representative earned a gold medal in the black belt division at the no-gi Worlds in 2013, and a silver at black belt in the BJJ Worlds this year.

Metamoris has produced a video to promote the event:
