by Brian Knapp | source:

Submission grappling savant Roger Gracie will meet Shark Fights champion Trevor Prangley in a featured light heavyweight duel under the Strikeforce banner on Jan. 29 at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif., according to a source with knowledge of the matchup.

A 10-time Brazilian jiu-jitsu world champion and two-time Abu Dhabi Combat Club Submission Wrestling World Championships winner, Gracie remains widely regarded as the brightest prospect of his famous family’s next generation.

Prangley has not fought since he earned a split decision over Keith Jardine at Shark Fights 13 in September.

Would the world explode if Roger got taken down and immediately put Prangley into rubber guard?
