Roger Gracie to Debut on May 15 Strikeforce Show

Roger Gracie is finally set to make his Strikeforce debut — and Strikeforce officials better hope he makes a better showing than Rolles Gracie put on at UFC 109.

Gracie, the 2005 ADCC champion, could potentially face former UFC heavyweight champion Kevin Randleman at the St. Louis show. MMA Junkie reported today that Rameau Thierry Sokodjou is also under consideration as Gracie’s first opponent under the Strikeforce banner.

Gracie is a second-degree black belt in jiu-jitsu under Carlos Gracie Jr, and is easily one of the most decorated grapplers to ever step into mixed martial arts.
