Gracie vs Randleman at Strikeforce May 15


With just a few weeks remaining until the next strikeforce show hits St. Louis on May 15, two more fights have been announced as Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu ace Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza takes on middleweight contender Joey Villasenor, while Roger Gracie makes his debut against former UFC fighter Kevin Randleman.

Dhabi world champion submission artist, Roger Gracie debuts for Strikeforce with only 2 pro MMA fights under his belt, but a wealth of grappling experience in his history. A member of the famed Gracie lineage in Jiu-Jitsu, Roger will hope to make his family proud when he debuts in Strikeforce.

Kevin Randleman will hope to rebuild himself with the fight against Gracie after dropping his last two fights in a row, and 4 out of his last 6 fights. An Ohio State Hall of Fame wrestler, Randleman has always been considered a dangerous fighter and he will try to give a rude welcome to the debuting Gracie in the Strikeforce cage.

Doubt that will happen. Roger pulled guard against Waterman and I don't see any reason why he wouldn't against Randleman. Randleman looked horrid against Whitehead, this is a perfect fight for Roger to get back into MMA with.Assuming he taps Randleman, maybe Roger/Ricco next?

If this turns into a horrid kickboxing match, I might never watch mma again

I've always been a Randleman fan but he is never in the fight mentally. That is something that can be corrected but I don't think he will ever correct it. He will be subbed with ease unfortunately.

Roger has to pick either grappling or MMA.... then he can fight more regularly imo.

I spent a week training in Vegas @ Drysdales and Randleman is in there working hard on his BJJ

Once the fight hits the floor it will be over.Randleman will not be able to get to his feet after this happens, then it is a matter of time before the submission.Roger is the best grappler out there by a mile!
