The main event of Friday's Bellator 285 in South Dakota features Gracie (11-3 MMA, 9-3 BMMA) vs. Goiti Yamauchi.
In this bout, two of the company's top grapplers will go head to head.
Even while Yamauchi (27-5 MMA, 13-4 BMMA) isn't as well-known in the jiu-jitsu community as Gracie or his family, it doesn't mean Gracie doesn't respect his ground game.
Gracie said that he used to watch him a lot since he has such a tremendous submission game. This guy has more than twenty submissions under his belt. Yamauchi was happy to be able to fight against a Gracie family member at the Bellator 284 press conference on Wednesday.
