After nearly a year, professional grappling promotion Metamoris is finally returning with a full card aimed for July 17.

The main event will feature a rematch between Roger Gracie and Marcus Almida. Two of the greatest Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practicioners to ever put on a gi, Almeida and Gracie fought to a draw at the first Metamoris event in 2012, although many believe that Almeida was on his way to a victory.

Also competing will be UFC veteran Gabrial Gonzaga and Rizin fighter Satoshi Ishii; and in a surprise announcement, Metamoris founder and former MMA fighter Ralek Gracie will be stepping up for his first pro grappling match, taking on BJJ black belt Tim Spriggs.

As always, the Metamoris event will also feature a "secret" match-up, which will not be revealed until moments before it's about to happen.

Here is the full card:

  • Matheus Diniz vs. Yuri Simoes
  • Ralek Gracie vs. Tim Spriggs
  • Gilbert Burns vs. Dillon Danis
  • (secret match): TBA vs. TBA
  • Gabriel Gonzaga vs. Satoshi Ishii
  • Marcus Almeida vs. Roger Gracie

Metamoris 7 is scheduled to take place on July 17 in Los Angeles. Tickets are on sale now.
