    Columbus, Ohio-based Gracie Fighting Championships will travel 4,500 miles to the Pacific for its "Gracie Proving Ground II" event, slated for the Neal S. Blaisdell Center in Honolulu on Oct. 6, Sherdog.com has learned.
    The follow-up to November's freshman GPG card will feature contests with rules similar to the heyday of PRIDE, with soccer kicks, stomps and knees to the head allowed on the ground.
    Rhalan Gracie -- a nephew to Royce and Rickson -- will headline the card along side Icon Sport veteran Keoni Bryant.
    In his lone professional MMA contest, Gracie went the distance in a hard-fought split decision defeat to UFC welterweight Dustin Hazelett in March 2006.
    Also signed to compete are Kaleo Kwan, Duke Saragosa, Brandon Wolff, Kimo Wolfel and Fabio Prada.

    Gracie Proving Grounds
    Saturday, October 6, 2007
    Blaisdell Arena

    The long awaited arrival of an MMA event by Relson Gracie makes it way to his home in Hawaii! The Gracie Proving Grounds is a feeder show for up and coming MMA talent to prove their worth for a shot at possibly being on the Gracie Fighting Championships seen on pay-per-view across the country. Relson has constructed his team of international, mainland, and local Hawaii fighters to take on fighters from Hawaii and Team Quest.


    Headlining the show is none other than Relson's son, Rhalan Gracie, who will make his return to the MMA scene after an epic debut fight against Dustin Hazlett. Rhalan showed huge heart and incredible technique in his first fight against a much more experienced Hazlett. Rhalan faces one of Hawaii's rising stars in Keone Bryant of Jus Rush. Bryant has been on a tear as of late finishing another MMA stud who is also on this card Koa Ramos of the Eastsidaz. Don't miss this opportunity to see a Gracie in action!

    Also on this card, Hawaii's own knock out artist Kaleo Kwan from the Eastsidaz and O2 Martial Arts Academy will face hard hitting Duke Saragosa of the 808 Fight Factory.
    Three Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Black Belts have been brought in by Relson to face Hawaii's own Kimo Wolfel from the Eastsidaz, "Sugar" Shane Nelson of Nova Uniao, and Brandon Wolff from Team MMAD. The rest of the card features Relson Gracie trained MMA fighters against a mix of Hawaii's up and coming talent.


    Even Jason "Mayhem" Miller will bring two Team Quest fighters to compete in this event.

    Will Rhalan be the Gracie that brings the Gracie name back to prominence in MMA?

    The tentative fight card is as follows:

    Cool. Do they still have that underground cage match going on up in Wahiawa? Is Master Olvier still teaching TKD up there? God I miss Hawai'i.
