Keith Jardine-Roger Gracie Set For July Strikeforce Event

Roger Gracie and Keith Jardine are being penciled in for a planned July Strikeforce card from Portland, according to a report by MMA Fighting’s Mike Chiappetta.

The card does not have a date, but the main event is rumored to feature Strikeforce middleweight champion Luke Rockhold defending his title against Tim Kennedy.

Rockhold defeated Jardine in his first title defense earlier this year, dropping Jardine’s record to 17-10-2 for the former UFC veteran.

Gracie (4-1) will be making his debut at middleweight after dropping down from light heavyweight. He was defeated by Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal last year.
