After spending a month training at Tiger Muay Thai and MMA training camp, Phuket Thailand earlier this year, 9x IFL veteran and 2x UFC fighter Mike Ciesnolevicz has agreed to a 4 fight contract with the rising MMA promotion SHINE FC.

Mike’s first opponent will be legendary Abu Dhabi submission grappler Rolles Gracie.

Rolles, training out of Renzo Gracie’s academy, began his career undefeated with fights in the IFL and China’s Art Of War fighting promotions. After a disappointing loss at UFC 109, Rolles is desperately in need of a win. With a win over Rolles Gracie, Ciesnolevicz would position himself for a possible title shot for the PPV broadcasted Shine FC.
