Josh Barnett To Defend His Metamoris Title Against Ryron Gracie

Josh Barnett was originally set to defend his heavyweight championship against Roberto Abreu at Metamoris 6. But it has been announced by Metamoris officials that Abreu has been forced to pull out of the fight due to injury. Barnett will now square off against Ryron Gracie on short notice.

Josh Barnett used his catch-wrestling skills to the best of his advantage to dominate grappling ace Dean Lister at Metamoris 4. Grappling out of the Gracie Academy, Ryron is Rorion Gracie’s first born son. Ryron will be stepping in to save the card for his brother, the founder of Metamoris, Ralek Gracie.
